During the 20th century There were various social and profitable changes that the American society had underwent. These changes included modifications in technology and science, government roles, gender roles, health and wellbeing, and the conceptions of freedom.

Modernism is a movement that arose from wide-scale and far-reaching transformations in Western society in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Modernism rejected the certainty of Enlightenment thinking. Modernist poetry refers to poetry written, mainly in Europe and North America, between 1890 and 1950 in the tradition of modernist literature. It is characterized by a self-conscious break with traditional styles of poetry and verse. Modernists experimented with literary expression and form, stick to Ezra Pound 's maxim to “Make it new”.
1. Definitions The last decades have brought about an inflation of visual materials and the occupying of a central place of the visual in contemporary Western culture. Many theorists claim that “Westerners now interact with the world mainly through how we see it” (Rose, 2012, p. 3) and that seeing has become our main source of knowledge and comprehension of the world (Rose, 2012, p. 3). This has led to the formation of a visual culture; that is, a multitude of ways in which the visual is integrated into social life (Rose, 2012, p. 4). Images are the result of particular means of understanding and attributing meaning to the world, they are interpretations of the world.

However, it was not always so because the definition of art changed throughout history. 20th century changes (explain what art was before dada, explain the concepts brought by Dadaism, how Dadaism influenced other artists, the movements that came after Dadaism and how they are a result of the same idea, explain Ferdinand de Sassure´s theory of language and its influence in the world of art, explain T.S. Kuhn´s theory of paradigm revolutions and how dada is based on the same principle, explain the death of god Nietzsche´s ideas and how this has a big influence in the perspective of the world that people have, as well as their needs) The Oxford Dictionary of Art defines Dada as “A movement in European art (with manifestations also in New York), c.1915-c.1922, characterized by a spirit of anarchic revolt against traditional values.” This disregard for the traditional views of art flourished in the violent environment that characterized the first part of the 20th century. The horrors seen by the world in the First World War were uncanny, and led to the inevitable questioning of the paradigms that ruled society. Marcel Duchamp, a French American artist that is considered a “(…)leader of the Dada movement(…)” , who is said to have “(…) revolutionized art like almost no other(…)” , was a key character in the questioning of the definition of art.
The western intellectual enquiry has undergone tremendous attitudinal as well as perceptional change over the years. The modifications are necessitated by the socio-political predicament of the ages gone into the repository of the past. Innumerable movements and isms have proficiently supplied ideas and ideologies to interpret the literary text from divergent perspective. “If there is such a thing as literary theory, then it would seem obvious that there is something called literature which it is the theory of.” (1) To put it precisely, much earlier critical writings aimed at explicating the nuances which must have involved in literary production. Whereas, the modern critical contributions rest largely on elucidating the technicalities that
Inbetween the years 1450-1750 CE, Western Europe and Russia have gone through several political and economic changes, though they have existed in different districts of Europe. Both Western European and Russian cultural patterns have been influenced by their enlightenment periods, bringing an era of revolution and economic/ intellectual advancement. However, though they shared this in common, Western Europe went through the Renaissance, a time of new styles and inventions in secular arts and sciences that challenged popular religion, while Russian was becoming a major European power through Westernization forces brought on by tsars, like Peter the Great. Many of Western Europe’s innovations in finance and government started developing during
