Storyboard Text

  • We will explore When I was One-and Twenty by A.E Housman, Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw, and 1984 by George Orwell.
  • Authors write to reach their audience based on the time period they live in; looking at the Victorian, Modern, and Postmodern eras of literature, we will see how they differ in reflecting society in which they live.
  • The Victorian age focused a lot on the idea of love; which is shown in this poem. The objects that are mentioned are also things common during this time period, but in modern day are not found.
  • Victorian era: 1833-1901
  • “When I was one and twenty i heard a wise man say, give crowns and pounds and guineas but not your heart away;”
  • Higgins is giving Eliza advice in this scene. This scene is an example of how social classes were becoming a big deal in modern society. Dominating even the way people were treated.
  • Modern 1901-1965
  • “The great secret, Eliza, is not having bad manners or good manners or any other particular sort of manners, but having the same manner for all human souls: in short, behaving as if you were in heaven, where there are no third-class carriages, and each soul is as good as another.”
  • In George Orwell's 1984, it sets up a government that controls everything and watches every move you do. This quote by the character O'brien helps give warning about a totalitarian government. Government seeing things such as information on our phones, is an example of how this story reflects the modern times.
  • Postmodern 1965-present
  • "One does not start a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship."
  • I hope that these three literature examples helped you understand how literature reflects society.
  • Housman, A. E. When I Was One-and-Twenty: Poems. Silver Thimble Books, 1986. Shaw, Bernard. Pygmalion: 1912. 1912. Orwell, George. 1984 . Spark Publishing, 2014.
