Describe the criticism of modern life on the basis of the stanza of the poem.

THE unpurged images of day recede;

The Emperor's drunken soldiery are abed;

Night resonance recedes, night walkers' song

After great cathedral gong;

A starlit or a moonlit dome disdains

All that man is,

All mere complexities,

The fury and the mire of human veins.

Criticism of modern life would include drinking to excess and violence from what I can see here. What is the name of the poem? I'd like to see it in its entirety.
