Who knew – I didn’t – that Hemingway wrote poems published by Der Querschnitt in 1924 but banned in the U.S? Rather fun and interesting bit of trivia, including the one above in which he satirizes Eliot.
The lady poets he’s referring to are:
Edna St. Vincent Millay
For we have thought the larger thoughts
And gone the shorter way.
And we have danced to devil’s tunes,
Shivering home to pray;
To serve one master in the night,
Another in the day.
– Ernest Hemingway
Some tidbits for a lazy Saturday. Have a great weekend all. ♥
