F Scott Fitzgerald Modernism
Jazz is a big artwork that contributed greatly to the modernism movement. It was the music everybody was listening during the roaring 20's and everybody had to listen to this new popular trend. This relates to my poem because they both symbolize something new to peoples life that everybody wants One is love which is in the poem point of view , and the other is to stay up to date with everybody likings. Both have sad parts in them but have a great outcome at the end. Also they both happen during the1920's.
COME out . . . . out
To this inevitable night of mine
Oh you drinker of new wine,
Here's pageantry . . . . Here's carnival,
Rich dusk, dim streets and all
The whispering of city night . . . .
I have closed my book of fading harmonies,
(The shadows fell across me in the park)
And my soul was sad with violins and trees,
And I was sick for dark,
When suddenly it hastened by me, bringing
Thousands of lights, a haunting breeze,
And a night of streets and singing . . . .
I shall know you by your eager feet
And by your pale, pale hair;
I'll whisper happy incoherent things
While I'm waiting for you there . . . .
All the faces unforgettable in dusk
Will blend to yours,
And the footsteps like a thousand overtures
Will blend to yours,
And there will be more drunkenness than wine
In the softness of your eyes on mine . . . .
Faint violins where lovely ladies dine,
The brushing of skirts, the voices of the night
And all the lure of friendly eyes . . . . Ah there
We'll drift like summer sounds upon the summer air . . . .
