Adam and Eve knew such perfection once,
God's finger within the cloud, and at the ground
Nothing yet springtime, not anything else at all.
But in our fallen country the place the blood hunts
For blood, and rises on the looking sound,
What will we comprehend of lasting because the fall?
Who has no longer, within the oil and warmth of youth,
Thought of the flourishing of the almond tree,
The grasshopper, and the failing of desire,
And concept his tongue may pierce the secrecy
Of the six-pointed starlight, and may choir
A secret-voweled, unutterable truth?

Page 8 The Literature of SoHo (1983) In many respects the literature of experimental Modernism which emerged in the last years of the nineteenth century and developed into the present one was an art of cities, especially of the polyglot cities, the cities which, for various historical reasons, had acquired high activity and great reputations as centers of intellectual and cultural exchange.
What is surely new is the art's consciousness of itself and its particular traditions.
