Generally, Jazz is believed to have originated in New Orleans, Louisiana after the Creoles who were originally from the West Indies and lived under Spanish and then French rule became American through the 1803 Louisiana Purchase from France.

Jazz evolved from the combination of the musical influences of the two different cultures.

The so-called "theater of the absurd" can be thought of as the expression of intellectual freedom of the early Twentieth Century. It explored themes and plots that were unconventional and that tested the audience's imagination. Likewise, the poetry of T.S.

16. How has high technology and the information explosion influenced late twentieth and early twenty-first-century culture, arts, and literature?

High technology has revolutionized contemporary culture, art, and literature as radically as the printing press and freedom of artistic expression did centuries earlier.
Today, social culture is much more dynamic than ever before, largely because of the speed and range of communications media. The same is true about art and literature in addition to the fact that the individual artist and writer no longer have to rely on third-party publishers and their opinions or decisions about the worth of their work in order to publish and distribute it very widely.
