Excerpt from New Paths: Verse, Prose, Pictures, 1917-1918

Then came the Georgian renaissance, and English poetry quickened with sudden, or seeming sudden, new life, which stirred not only in men themselves new to literature but in others who had served their 'prenticeship, with more or less of promise, during the lean years.

This new poetry is, in one of its many aspects, a reaction against the decadents; a reaction not of optimism against pessimism but of catholicism against eclecticism. While the decadents were undeniably pessimists, the writers of the present generation are not necessarily; or usually, optimists. They accept the whole of life, but they are not victims of the illusion that it has an essential tendency to improve. They are realists.

Their attitude towards the most common theme of poetry is worth considering in this connection. The decadents were pessimistic amorists.
