The argument is between "The Voice of the Man Impatient with Visions and Utopias" and "The Rhymer's Reply: Incense and Splendor" and is presented as two poems under those titles. The former takes an anti-utopian position and the latter replies with the hope for a coming eutopia. See also 1909, 1913, 1920, and 1925 (2) Lindsay.
