They sucked us in;
King and country,
And the rest.
Words and phrases,
They either bitched or killed us.
these Hemingway's poems remember me (a bit) some of Ungaretti's poetry..
In 'A Farewell to Arms', Hemingway says:
'' abstract words such as glory, honor, courage, or hallow were obscene beside the concrete names of villages, the numbers of roads, the names of rivers, the numbers of regiments and the dates ''.
