WWI and Modernism by Colton Merrell

Part of Group:

   Poems such as "Dulce Et Decorum" describe the challenges and hardships brought on by WWI. It had been a while since a war this large had broken out and it also brought fear to the people as well mental and physical damage to the soldiers that were fighting. Modernism also has an influence since it represents the start of a new era, but unfortunately, this new era which was the 20th century started off pretty rough with the Great War occurring.
