Modernism and Poetry: Modernism in poetry is a literary movement that emerged in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, marked by a deliberate departure from traditional forms and a focus on experimentation, individualism, and a fragmented view of reality. Modernist poets sought to capture the complexities and ambiguities of modern life, often reflecting the disillusionment and alienation brought about by the rapid changes of the time.

Notable modernist poets include T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, and Wallace Stevens. These poets often employed innovative techniques such as stream of consciousness, allusion, and juxtaposition to create a sense of immediacy and exploration of the inner workings of the human mind. Their poems frequently lacked traditional rhyme and meter, instead emphasizing free verse and unconventional structures. Modernist poetry is characterized by its exploration of subjectivity, the subconscious, and the interplay between language and perception, reflecting the broader artistic and intellectual shifts of the modernist era.
