Divides Present Day Productions In-
to Three Classes; War In-
fluence to Be Felt Later
Dividing the poetry of the present
into three classes; the romantic, rep-
resented by John G. Fletcher, the
realistic as presented by the verse of
Vachel Lindsay, and the pivot point
between these two extremes as shown
in the writing of Amy Lowell, Mr.
Lyman Bryson, of the Rhetoric de-
partment, picked out the sharply de-
fined lines between the three types
in his lecture, "New Movements in
Modern Poetry," delivered yesterday
afternoon in the Natural Science audi-
"Egotism, self reliance, and a de-
parture from all other forms of poetry
are the brands which mark the fiery
writings of the romantic poets," said
Hr. Bryson. He said that in the fore
front of the Romantists are the whole
Imagist group, which rely upon words
and phrases to represent their
thoughts. This and the unfound
standard for the verse measure of this
type of poets create in their writings
confusion and disorder. None of them
use the same form and they are al-
ways at odds with each other. The
only consistant thing about their
verse is its revolt. They are always
romantic in this point."
Says "The Congo" is eal Poetry
In discussing the realistic verse
makers. Mr. Bryson quoted from "The
Congo" by Vachel Lindsay. "We find
here courageous effort at penetration,
frequent complete mastery of the sub-
ject," said the lecturer. "'The Congo'
may not be great poetry, but it is cer-
tainly real poetry. There is not long-
er any question about the fact." "The
realists see life fearlessly and call it
good," said Mr. Bryson, in discussing
the point of view taken by this people.
Amy Lowell besides being the mean
between these two extremes some-
times lapses back into the classical,
was the opinion of the speaker. He
stated that she made poetry out of
everything, "from baths to bilious-
In discussing the new poetry about
the war, the critic stated that on ac-
count of its recentness, it willnot be
given its proper place for some time.'
Much of it will undoubtedly be judged
in the future as of high rank. A per-
son that is writing cannot do justice
to his subject while in a state of ex-
citement, because while he is writing
the poetry, he cannot think of his
reader but only of himself.
War Influence to Come Later
"The war influence will not be sig-
nificant in literature until the action
of the struggle has ceased," expressed
the speaker. "Great literature is more
memory than direct writing."
In conclusion, Mr. Bryson said, "I
believe that the art of our times will
be thought Ion after this to be the
fruit of one of our greatest epochs.
When qualities of high courage and
life, lived at an intensity which is so
sublime as to be terrible, are exper-
ienced by a certain generation,' the
results will show themselves in liter-
ature with characteristics such as the
world has never known."
To Mix Their Individual War Whoops
Port Royal, S. C., Aug. 3.-The war
whoop of our American Indian will
soon be intermingled with the cries
of the once savage East Indian tribes,
who, trained to the use of the rifle by
Great Britain, are now fighting at the

front for the cause of democracy
against a common foe.
Word received' from Paris Island
states that full-blooded American war-
riors have joined hands with Uncle
Sam's marines and are anxious to rep-
resent the "Billy Blues" abroad upon
the completion of their training.
