Duncan suggests that poetic language – our now apparently anachronistic “delite” – acquires authenticity from the act of speaking against the language of war and thereby exposes the necessary “ﬂaw” in an otherwise impeccably circular logic. As for Stein, the “ﬂaw” is produced not just by seeing war but by seeing it through writing, an optic which also, as the Language poets would later conﬁrm, allows us to see the writing itself. The assumptions at work here, shared in different ways by poets such as Charles Olson, Robert Creeley, George Oppen, and Louis Zukofsky, return us inevitably to the primary inﬂuence all four shared – Ezra Pound – who, when Duncan wrote these lines, was conﬁned in St Elizabeth’s hospital, pending his eventual ﬁtness to stand trial for treason.

Indeed, with World War II, it was the very question of distancing which became for many writers a primary concern. How and from where do we see a war? This is one of the conundrums posed by Gertrude Stein’s Wars I Have Seen, ﬁrst published in 1945. It’s a title quite devoid of hyperbole: Stein was born in 1874, and her lifetime, as she reminds us, spanned the Spanish–American War, the Russo-Japanese War, the Boer War, the Chinese–Japanese War, the two Balkan wars, the Abyssinian War, the Spanish Civil War, as well as the two world wars (Stein 1945: 43, 64, 72).
