MetadataShow full item record
Modernism is a remarkable shift from the traditional forms of writing in English literature. William Butler Yeats (1865-1939), William Carlos Williams (1883-1963), Ezra Pound (1885-1927) and Thomas Steams Eliot (1888-1965) are some of important poets in modern period. Moreover, World War I has important role in shattering traditional beliefs. As a result, values, conventions and life style have changed. Moreover, scientific innovation has important role to bring social changes. Many modem writers have been influenced by the crisis of early twentieth century society. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to focus on how a few major modem poets have responded to modem civilization.
