Regarding the Age of Anxiety:

World War One had brought unprecedented destruction to the world and the Treaty of Versailles, which Woodrow Wilson had envisioned as the instrument of permanent peace, created more problems than it solved. The harsh treatment of Germany, the failure to resolve colonial claims of the Allied powers, and the political upheaval which had begun in Russia but soon spread to other nations together with a massive worldwide economic depression led waste to established values and caused cultural transformations and abandonment of traditional ideas on a scale never before seen. Belief in the superiority of European social and political institutions crumbled while bold new cultural paths emerged. Even the belief in Newtonian physics, considered immutable, was soon challenged.

Uncertainty and Change in the Postwar World: The Great War had been enthusiastically supported by European and American intellectuals, who saw it as a great adventure. The harsh realities of the war left them disillusioned about war and human nature itself. The result was a feeling of despair and fatalism. A number of American writers, such as T.S. Eliot and Ernest Hemingway, left America for Europe where they expressed their revulsion with the war in their work. Their disillusionment was so great that Gertrude Stein, also an American author once remarked to Ernest Hemingway, “All you young people who fought in the war; you are a lost generation. The phrase lost generation came to describe all these writers, famous for such works as Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms, and The Sun Also Rises. Among the more famous European writers was Erich Maria Remarque, who wrote All Quiet on the Western Front.
