Identify which of the following events was NOT a major influence of the Modernist writers.
*World War I
*World War II
(i thought it would be the Harlem renaissance but its not a answer choice.)
Since modernist literature focused on European society, I'll vote for the Great Depression as not being a major influence.
Hmmmm. TS Elliot focused on the depression (The Waste land).
World War II was a boone to post-modernist writers, so I would go with the least influence to modernist writers the events of WWII.
If you look at the modernist writers, nearly all of them died before WWII ended, and nearly all of the works were in the 20's and 30's.
