Overview:
The end of the 19th century into the 20th century was a time of great societal
change, which influenced how artists and intellectuals began to view and portray
the world. Advances in technology, along with the rise and fall of prosperity that
occurred in the early part of the 20th century, led many artists to express mixed
feelings about the new industrialized era. These major shifts in society led to the
modernist, and later, the postmodernist, mindsets that are reflected in 20thcentury literature, art, and intellectual concepts.
Significant influencers of this time included Walt Whitman, Henri de ToulouseLautrec, Sigmund Freud, and Richard Strauss. Reading, viewing, and listening to
their works provides a snapshot of how 20th-century literature and modern
identities began to form.
