In the years from 1900 to 1945 the world of literature went through a seismic shift. The idealism of the Belle Époque gave way to Dada, surrealism and many a movement that came to embody the modernist era.
Turbulent political times and a series of catastrophic world events gave rise to a generation of novelists and poets striving to make sense out of a changed world order, who combined to produce some of the finest works of fiction ever put to paper.
If you love Evelyn Waugh, Virginia Woolf, James Joyce, T.S. Eliot, W. Somerset Maugham, Joseph Conrad, Katherine Mansfield, D.H. Lawrence, Marcel Proust, W.H. Auden, Ernest Hemingway, Aldous Huxley, F. Scott Fitzgerald...and the many other exciting authors of that time you'll love this group.
