1. Watch this short (admittedly goofy) video explaining the “Lost Generation” writers:
The Lost Generation Writers Explained
2. Read Hemingway’s 2 short stories (they’re really short !!!)
a. Hills Like White Elephants (1927) – text here
b. A Clean, Well-Lighted Place (1933) – text here
3. Aer reading the two Hemingway stories, use the information below and the information you learned in the video to respond to the prompt.
As you learned in the video, the phrase 
“Lost
 Generation”
 refers to a group of writers in
the post-WWI era. Ernest Hemingway, Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot, and F. Scott Fitzgerald are some of the eminent figures in this literary group. The
 “Lost
 Generation”
 writers
 were
 skeptical 
about
 traditional
 forms
 of
 literature
 and 
art,
 and
 welcomed 
new
 forms.
 Generally
 disillusioned
 by 
the 
large
 number
 of 
lives 
lost
 in
 the Great 
War, many of this generation were uncertain (or outright pessimistic) about the future, 
and dubious of 
many 
social 
norms 
related 
to
 
appropriate behavior,
 morality, 
and
 gender 
roles.

For each of Hemingway’s stories, write one paragraph (that’s 2 total) in which you explore how he depicts the post- WWI time period. What “lost generation” themes are evident in the writing, and how does this relate to what you know about American culture & society in the years following the Great War?
A few things you may want to consider for each of the stories:
● the topic of the dialogues between characters (hint: especially hidden/double meanings)
● setting & atmosphere
● the terse style of Hemingway’s writing
● tone, imagery, symbolism present in each story
Your finished response should be two paragraphs total. Each paragraph should make use of some textual evidence from Hemingway’s stories.
