The Lost Generation

  • Group of American writers who lived and rose to prominence in Europe during the 1920's
  • The generation was lost because its inherited values were no longer relevant in the post war world.
  • The phrase-and Hemingway's book-depicted this generation as characterised by doomed youth, hedonism, uncompromising creativity, and wounded-both literally and metaphorically-by the experience of war.
