Question Description

In 1,500-2,000 words, demonstrate your knowledge of the Modernist theme that you selected in the Research Proposal by using two literary texts and scholarly research to convince readers how and why your chosen theme is representative of Modernism. Your essay must be an argument with significant literary analysis and well-integrated scholarly sources.

Your essays will include:

  1. An effective introduction about the period and the theme, which ends in a clear thesis that is fully supported by the rest of your paper
  2. A brief biographical sketch of the writers and some discussion of how they and their
  3. work are Modern
  4. Textual evidence from the selected works to explain your analysis
  5. Secondary sources to support your analysis
  6. A conclusion that neither repeats nor summarizes your essay but, rather, provides commentary on the larger issues you’ve raised and perhaps responds to the postmodern period that reacted against what the Moderns were doing

It is believed to have resulted from the Industrial Revolution, which began and gained momentum in the era. The revolution saw men move from farms to cities to seek employment in the factories leaving women and children behind. The men who moved to the cities with their families experienced isolation as well since, before the revolution in the Modern Period, families lived in small towns surrounded by their extended families in close-knit communities. Children inherited their parent’s land, build homes, and had their children who continued the cycle. Different generations, therefore, lived close to each other. The move to big cities, therefore, saw families lose their support systems which further contributed to isolation. Furthermore, the industrial revolution led to an expansion of the public-school system which led to students moving far away from home to attend college. This isolation is reflected in literature from the Modern Period. The theme of isolation is, therefore, one of the defining characteristics of the Modern Period. The theme of isolation features as the dominant theme in some notable works of literature in the period, most notably Auden’s “In Memory of W. B. Yeats” and Williams’ “The Young Housewife.” The deliberate use of language to depict the world as a lonely place in “In Memory of W. B. Yeats” and the loneliness and isolation experienced by the character in “The Young Housewife” reflect isolation. The isolation resulted from situations such as loss or the industrial revolution which led to an increase in the number of working hours and saw men abandon farm work to move close to industries in the city. “The Young Housewife” depicts a lonely housewife who is isolated in her husband’s house. Her isolation is palpable through the speaker’s words. Williams, for instance, refers to the house as “her husband’s house” (Jacobs 152). By not referring to the house as their home, Williams gives the idea of a woman trapped and alone in a Fermas 3 house while her husband is at work which was common in the Modern Period. Her isolation is heightened in the second stanza where the “curb” demonstrates the barrier between her and the outside world which prevents her from escaping her isolation. “In Memory of W. B. Yeats,” on the other hand, advances the theme of isolation through the loss of a loved one. Isolation is seen in the poet’s description of life after the death of Yeats through phrases such as “the airport almost deserted,” “silence invaded the suburbs” (Jeffares 434). These phrases depict loneliness after the loss of a great poet. Both poems, therefore, explore the theme of isolation. The essay will feature scholarly sources to help demonstrate how the two poems are representative of the theme of isolation. One of the sources is an article titled “Industrialization and the Family: A World View” authored by L. Jaganmohan Rao published by the International Journal of Sociology of the Family. The article explores the effects of industrialization, the major defining revolution of the Modern Period, on the family. It concludes that industrialization isolated the nuclear family from the larger kinship system. The second source is a book titled “Voices & Visions Viewer’s Guide by Joseph Parisi and the American Library Association. The book explores some of the works of Williams such as “The Young Housewife.” It analyzes the poem and identifies its deeper meaning such as the hint of eroticism in its speaker’s words. It also identifies the sense of isolation and loneliness felt by the young women. Fermas 4 Works Cited Jacobs, Willis D. "81. Williams’ the Young Housewife." The Explicator 28.9 (1970): 152-155.

Isolation and Modernism
Isolation is one of the defining characteristics of the Modern Period. The Modern Period,
which is the closest historical period to the world today began in the seventeenth century and is
ongoing. Before the period, single-person households were non-existent. Families settled close to
each other, had cordial relationships with their neighbors, and the sense of the community was
strong. After the industrial revolution which defined the Modern period, individuals and families
moved away from their settlements into the city to seek employment in industries. This paradigm

“The Young Housewife” is a poem written during the period by Carlos Williams. It features a
young woman who is left alone and in isolation by her husband which was the typical
arrangement in the modern era. “In Memory of W.B. Yeats,” another poem written by Auden
during the period describes the isolation experienced by people after the loss of a renowned poet.
It describes the world in the modern period as a lonely place in which people were isolated. “The
Young Housewife” and “In Memory of W.B. Yeats” depict the isolation which is representative
of modernism.
William Carlos Williams, the author of “The Young Housewife,” was an American
physician and poet. Born in 1883 in Rutherford, New Jersey to an English father and Puerto

Rican mother, Williams went on to explore the American society and its transformation during
the modern era in his work while practicing medicine as well. Despite having a career in
medicine, his literary career was very successful. He is famed for disregarding the conventions of
poetry and producing poetry which is open to different interpretations. He, however, addressed
the common theme of modernism in his work leading to his establishment of a reputation of his
work as modernist. He particularly focused on criticizing modernism for its transformation of the
American identity th...
