This unit of study is focused on a close consideration of major writers in the Modernist movement, from 1910 until the Second World War. The genesis and principles of Modernism will be considered, in the writings of W B Yeats and T S Eliot, in detailed readings of a range of their poetry, with particular attention to Eliot's "The Waste Land" and Yeats's "The Tower".
