Modernism was a significant stage of human development in the first half of the 20th century. In literature, this was a time of stylistic experiments and struggling with existential questions. Modernists examined ordinary people and human psychology to explore their own views on the nature of life--by such Modernist giants as James Joyce, Thomas Mann, and Ernest Hemingway. We will explore Modernism as a literary style and way of thinking and the novella as a genre. To make it even more interesting, we will watch a classic film based on one of the novellas and examine it as a cinematic text.
