Ethnic Writers and the Literary Mainstream

Amidst the chaos following World War I, Ezra Pound urged poets to "Make it New!" This call was heeded by a large range of poets, from T.S. Eliot to Jean Toomer. This episode explores the modernist lyrics of two of these poets: William Carlos Williams and Langston Hughes. What is modernism? How did these poets start a revolution that continues until this day?
