Modernism and metaphysics

Modernist literary works coincide with paradigmatic changes in humanistic and scientific orientations. Multiple fields as diverse as philosophy, physics, music, painting, literature and history exhibit a marked renewal as far as the pursuit of cognitive goals is concerned. Religion and theology are replaced by a radical search for meaning and unity in the midst of apparent civilizational disunity and chaos. Through stylistic and structural experiments the modernist literary texts reflects the modern – late 19 and 20 & 21 century – experience of disorientation and meaninglessness while engaging in a cognitive effort to gain unity. This effort results in a metaphysical pursuit which in some cases is conducive to an intense transcendental vision and in other cases leads to ironic disparagement.
