The “Golden Twenties” marked the beginning of modernity. After the devastation of World War I, cultural life blossomed and old traditions gave way to a new age. Everything seemed possible: there were advances in technology and radical new movements in all aspects of the arts and literature, fashion, and life style. Although often called the “Age of Excess,” the twenties produced lasting achievements and ushered in modern society. We will examine how this first truly modern decade manifested itself in Berlin.
Vera Wentworth holds a PhD in English and has taught at the college level for 30 years, mostly at the University of Maryland and Prince George’s Community College. She has taught a variety of literature courses at OLLI.
