英文概述
English Description
This survey course examines key Modernist and Post-Modern poetry, fiction and drama from the West. In the period between WWI and WWII, international artistic movements such as the Dadaists, the Futurists and the Surrealists, as well as American writers such as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Eugene O'Neill and Zora Neale Hurston helped to define a new Modernist impulse in Western literature; after WWII, post modern writers such as the poets of the Beat and New York School movements, playwright Samuel Beckett, and fiction writers Flannery O'Connor, James Baldwin and Toni Morrison took up where the Modernists had left off, but were faced with still more complex aesthetic, political and spiritual challenges.
