THE POETS-AMY LOWELL
(Continued from Page 1)
the French town of Bar-le-Duc in the
Province of the Meuse, the prefect
had issued instructions to prevent the
children from eating candies which
might have been dropped from Ger-
man airplanes, as other candy simi-
larly scattered had been found to
contain poison. The poem begins:
"Currants and Honey!
Bar-le-Duc in times of peace.
Cherry blossom, poppy-sweet honey.
And round red currants like grape
Red and yellow globes, lustred like
stretched umbrella silk."
And so, through delicate, burning
lines describing the making of the
candy, and the laughter of Germany,
-the laughter of the people who for
years have eaten the currants and
honey of Bar-le-Duc, and who now
will "give back sweetness for sweet-
ness,"-on to the sharp, restrained
horror of the conclusion.
But this is Amy Lowell in an un-
usual mood. She is concerned pri-
marily with the thing seen rather than
the thing felt. She loves brilliance
and color, the flash and glow of the
physical -world which she so intensely
observes and enjoys. Her work has
the hard, bright, decorative beauty of
cloisonn. She is an artist in lacquers

anyprevious civilization. The mainpre-
suppositions of this third period of the
later Middle Ages go back, however,
to the Roman Empire. They had been
formulated by the Church Fathers,
transmitted through the Dark Ages,
and were now elaborated by the po-
fessors in ,the newly established uni-
vergities under the influence of Aris-
totle's recovered works and built up
into a majestic intellectual structure
known as Scholasticism. * * *
r civilization and the human
d, critical and uncritical, as we
it in our western world, is a
rI snd uninterrupted outgrowth
ce ivilization and thought of the
later Middle Ages. Very gradually
only did peculiarly free and auda-
olous individual thinkers escape from
this or that medieval belief, until
in our own day some few have come
to reject practically all the presuppo-
sitions on which the Scholastic sys-
tem was reared. But the great mass
of Christian believers, whether Cath-
olic or Protestant,tstill professedly
or implicity adhere to the assumptions
of the Middle Ages, at least in all mat-
ters in which religious or moral sanc-
tions are concerned.
