henryghenrik: A passage toward the end of Massimo Bacigalupo’s fine book (Ezra Pound, Italy, and The Cantos). I think he’s saying something special and perceptive here.

henryghenrik: I’m always shadow boxing with Ezra Pound, and all the things I so dislike about him. Because basically there’s something I really like about The Cantos. Maybe it’s the feeling of being OUTDOORS. Despite all the trumpets and haute whatever. Being out of doors. Fresh air.

tonytost: Some critique that they don't know what Adam Curtis' argument is in his films. That seems off. I take Curtis as working more in the mode of Ezra Pound's THE CANTOS or Charles Olson's MAXIMUS POEMS: linking together luminous, disparate details in order to *feel* the connections.
