A Guideline for Modern Literature

A Guideline for Modern Literature

It might seem reasonable to study Modern Literature by certain films. The fresh ideas in new ways were expressed by a modernist ethic which was embraced by the authors of this genre. The brief reference to Buster Keaton’s “The General” will make your paper striking if you’re writing an essay on D.H. Lawrence’s “The Virgin and the Gypsy.”

The literary traditions and practices of the past were set back by the renowned authors of Modern Literature. Capitalism with its meaning of freedom for a handful of people who could now opt for indulgence made them aware of the European upheavals, where colonialism and capitalism had extensive effects.

  • German Expressionism can be a usual reference
  • Some would be staggering pictures, where the audience would be shaken off by the filmmakers. Black was black as usual but white had never been that white. The characters that were fighting with conflicting emotions that affected them. The rise of Nazism is eluded in these films.

  • A story about Charlie Chaplin as an addition, if not a compelling topic
  • This comedian could have been a hero from a novel of Charles Dickens; he was far from the leading men in Hollywood. He wasn’t insecure at all, as his Tramp managed to find a girl to love him. Being a young man with the humble background he won over the downside of capitalism. Laughter became his shelter and the weapon. He couldn’t be accused of jumping off the political fence, as he remained faithful to his working-class background. Any of George Orwell’s books could be complemented by Chaplin’s life.

  • French cinema
  • Jean Renoir’s works being a good example of classicism are still modernist in nature for sure. Besides, France was different after the fall of the Bastille and Napoleon’s departure, agree?
