WWI really changed the way that writers wrote.  Many people in America were upset with what happened during the war as they heard about the poor conditions the soldiers were experiencing.  This was reflected in the style of writing in America.  Writers began creating pieces that were much more dark and depressing.

 World War I also gave writers a new topic to write about: war.  Some writers  tried to create pieces that would inspire social change and stop further wars from happening. Many pieces of writing also tried to create new values.
