FYS 084 Music, Art, and Literature in the Year 1944-1945

As is often the case after cataclysmic world events, things change, as the war in Europe transformed into the Cold War between the US and the Soviets, humanity came under threat of nuclear annihilation. Music, art, and literature of this year provide great insight into these events; it will be our task to explore connections between the works of art created in response to the end of WWII and the beginning of the Cold War.
