Modernism In The Short Stories Of Ernest Hemingway And F. Scott Fitzgerald

Modernism was a worldwide artistic movement of the late 19th and early 20th century in the pre-WWI and post-WWI worlds. It sought to break with traditional and classical forms of art be they music, painting, dance, or literature. Two American writers of the 1920s and 1930s, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway, changed forever the focus and form of the short story. We will read stories by each writer written from 1920-1933. Fitzgerald: “Bernice Bobs Her Hair” (1920), “May Day” (1920), “Winter Dreams” (1922), and “Babylon, Revisited” (1931), and Hemingway: “Cat in the Rain” (1925), “The Killers” (1925), “Hills Like White Elephants” (1927), and “A Way You’ll Never Be” (1933).   All of these stories should be downloadable in pdf files.
