Anyone who is interested in the Decadent movement or the authors that formed a part of it will want to take a moment to read this short paragraph which details a bit about the sister of one of the famous authors of the time: Franz Kafka. Now if you have never heard of him before, that’s ok. Just be forewarned that some of his literature is difficult to read because it contains often sad and painful lessons behind it. If you put thought into stories such as In the Penal Colony, perhaps you will (like I did) see the beauty behind these pensive tales.

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger is probably one of the more famous literary works of the 20th century – and most of us were probably required to read it waaaayy back in high school right? Well if you want to spend a moment reminiscing over those long gone days (or reminiscing because you are still in high school), you will thoroughly enjoy this article about the writing process of The Catcher in the Rye. I bet you didn’t know that while the novel was in process it traveled overseas and took part in World War II. Or that Salinger was one of the many soldiers fighting in that same war. Even if you did know these factoids, the article will take you in depth and pull you into Salinger’s own story. It’s a great read! Enjoy!
