Chieftain Iffucan of Azcan in caftan

Of tan with henna hackles, halt!

Damned universal cock, as if the sun

Was blackamoor to bear your blazing tail.

Fat!  Fat!  Fat!  Fat!  I am the personal.

Your world is you.  I am my world.

You ten-foot poet among inchlings. Fat!

Begone! An inchling bristles in these pines,

Bristles, and points their Appalachian tangs,

And fears not portly Azcan nor his hoos.

.: :.

This poem is about the glorified and heavily traditional poet and/or style of poetry imposing its dominance on the \"inchlings\" of New World poets and styles. The Cheiftan is a metaphor for traditional poetry and values (i.e. from Shakespeare to Keats etc.) and the inchlings represent the new class of modernist poetry; that of Stevens and his other contemporaries. With the metaphor in place, Stevens makes it clear that the inchlings are not intimidated and do not welcome the Cheiftan. In fact, the Pine-Woods (an analogy to the New World/Americas/Modern Poetry) is their turf where they are entitled to and practice creatively thier own poetic styles and ideologies. This poem is a statement of artistic independence.
