Abstract

The commercial age in America, coupled with the World war, has had no less influence in the field of poetic values than in the field of business. In the following pages I have attempted to show that the outlook of modern poetry is both natural and purposeful as a result of its environment and background; that, though unstable and variable at the present, it is gradually attaining through various short-lived movements, a degree of finish and crystallization; and that the entire outlook is a presagement, a finger pointing in the direction of a fuller, richer cultural life that shall come to birth in America.
