[6], 113, [9] p., illus., index, 24 cm. Illustrated by Sgt. Stanley Meltzoff. Edited by Lt. Ed Hill. "The birth of the Puptent poets took place more than two years ago. No one had to be a great poet, nor even a very good one to break into print. Soldiers struck out boldly. What went into the paper was the best of the Army's verse-making of that day or that week. If the meter was wobbly and the rhymes eccentric or missing, no one got too excited." Stock#37999. Good+, stapled in color pictorial paper covers (chipped, worn, soiled).

Mackaye, Percy  
The Present Hour: A Book of Poems
 Picture
Publisher: The Macmillan Company, 1914 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall Percy Mackaye was a noted American playwright and poet of the first half of the twentieth century. This book of poems deals with the early conflict in World War I. "Posterity alone can correctly estimate and apportion the right and wrong of the great war in Europe. At the present hour, we who look on from neutral American can but judge the war's issues by the facts and arguments laid before us by the press and spokesmen of all parties in the conflict. By such evidence, the sympathies of our citizens, by overwhelming majority, are with the cause of the Allies. In thus sympathizing with the Allies, we do so, I believe, whole-heartedly in the faith (based on the declared policy of English leaders) that they are waging against militarism a fight to lessen world armament and the political o9ppression of small nations. If they win and the stipulations of peace should prove otherwise, our revulsion of feeling would surely be commensurate. It is conceivable, though hardly probable, that future evidence may alter our judgment of the belligerents. Our reasons remain open to conviction. But no future contingencies can, or should, stay us now from taking thought and expressing it. In view of the world-misery involved by the war, our reaction, while dispassionate, cannot possibly be unpassioned. Not to feel its awful issues passionately would be uncivilized. Confronted by moral and social issues of a conflict the most poignant in history, it becomes for us - as neutrals, who alone may help to form untainted world opinion - a pressing duty and privilege to express ourselves." xii + 119 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. NO dust jacket.

Appr.: | AUD 21.43 CAD 20.83 EUR 13.39 GBP 10.42 JPY 1,500.00 MXN 250.00 ZAR 250.00
