Question description

write a at least 350 words discussion board

All four authors this week (in addition to many others we have read or will read in this class) are writing in response to modernizing forces or influences. In some cases, the modern influence is war. In other stories, they consider how to navigate the modern world in light of past traditions or beliefs. There are some other modern perspectives that might be considered as well, and keep in mind that "modern" can just mean modern or new for the time the text is set or written and doesn't necessarily mean modern as in "today." Using at least one specific example from the assigned texts of at least three of the four authors for this week, what are some of the modern influences you see the characters contending with or the authors addressing? How do we see the influences in the stories or poems? What might those examples or the way they are portrayed teach us about modernization?
