In class, we've moved through several literary movements that are characterized by similar themes in social life and trends in literature. Inequality and racism, the overwhelming effects of industrialization, the harrowing realities of war, feminism, etc. It makes me wonder what will be the issues of our generation, and will we be the future authors that portray these issues?
Lately, it's been hard to turn on the news and not hear some conservative vs. liberal discussion about healthcare (so I don't turn on the news), and it depresses me to think that fiscal policy is the most exciting thing to report on the news. There seems to be no obvious radical, revolutionary social issue that truly defines our generation--but maybe that's just me. What do you guys think?
