The Lost Generation

May 1, 2015 |  Tagged , | 10 Comments

In the aftermath of the First World War, the youths became known as the “lost generation”. Though the term is generally associated with a group of American expatriates in Paris, it has a relevance to most of the surviving young people of Europe.The generation had become aimless and disillusioned after witnessing the horrors of World War I. There was a mass loss of faith in traditional values and a shift to a more material, some would say frivolous, lifestyle.

Most commonly, the phrase “lost generation” is seen in relation to young writers who were in Paris in the 1920s, such as Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Gertrude Stein. These authors are known for putting that era’s feelings of hopelessness and general skepticism into words.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
