Men, Women and Ghosts was written in 1916. Amy Lowell ended the preface in her book with these words:
For the substance of the poems -- why, the poems are here. No one writing today can fail to be affected by the great war raging in Europe at this time. We are too near it to do more than touch upon it....I have only been able to open a few windows upon it here and there. But the scene from the windows is authentic, and the watcher has used eyes, and ears, and heart, in watching.
