In my reading, H.D.'s varied concerns and images in thiswork all have a defense of poetry and poets at their root. So, when H.D.describes wartime destruction, she conveys it in terms of \"our books area floor / of smoldering ash under our feet,\" (42) as if the war were adirect attack on writers. Similarly, she addresses the \"Sword,\" hermetonym for the violence of war, to warn it that \"without thought,invention, / you would not have been,\" (43) meaning that, while violenceis an unfortunate by-product of human endeavor, it is one that will always besubordinate to--and defined by--the word; for H.D., it is no coincidence that\"sword\" and \"words\" are anagrams. Language is not justthe material from which poetry is made, it is a force in its own right, andfor H.D. there is no more worthy use of language than poetry. Poets, in hervision, are \"proud and chary,\" (44) \"indifferent to your goodand evil,\" (45) humbly admitting that \"we ... / have our badmoments\" but remaining \"wistful, ironical, willful,\" (46)their fluidity conveyed by the alliteration in that phrase. PlainlyH.D.'s poets are varied in their attributes and possess humor andpersonality, far more so than those critics, observers or warmongers who aresimply \"good\" or \"evil.\"
