    One thought on “Literary Essays of Ezra Pound”

    1. There were aspects of each essay in the collection edited by T.S Eliot which glimmered with stunning poetic vision There were also serial rants, an ugly approach to pedagogy which illuminates if not anticipates some of the malignant spiel Pound would later deliver for Mussolini on he radio I m listening to one of those ugly broadcasts right now as I type.Pound s meticulous analysis of meter and melody are always undermined by his frothing certainty mystic fog shrouds much of history Pounder par [...]

    2. Pound The bottom line for me is that his poetry is great as an idea, while his prose is great as an experience that is, actually great The essays in this book and elsewhere the letters too are so entertaining a cross between Mark Twain, H.L Mencken, Flaubert, maybe the Goncourt brothers Pound s acidity is aggravating at times, but this is part of the fun and anyway maybe we need to be aggravated he always ends up paying us for it anyway In the end, he continues a tradition of American essay writ [...]

    3. Lots of fun The essay, How To Read is one of the very best literary essays ever written by an American poet Way beyond the ABC s of reading, this essay simply rocks Worth the whole book though there is a lot of good stuff in this book Try it.

    4. I have only read the first section of this The Art of Poetry, but wish I had come upon it sooner In particular, the two essays, The Serious Artist, and How to Read, are absolutely excellent.

    5. Es el primer libro que leo exclusivamente dedicado a la cr tica literaria por tanto no tengo un punto de referencia para comparar la calidad de los ensayos Sin embargo, lo que puedo dar como opini n es una sensaci n muy placentera de haber tenido la oportunidad de acercarme y conocer una gran cantidad de poetas, escritores y artistas hasta ahora desconocidos Ezra Pound me ha dejado at nito con su amplio conocimiento, con su tenaz dedicaci n, hab a le do algunos poemas suyos pero no ten a idea de [...]

    6. Eliot has trifurcated Pound s essays conveniently 1 The Art of Poetry, 2 The Tradition, and 3 Contemporaries Included in the back is a profitable index with authors, works, poetic devices such as assonance , and subjects such as American fiction, the mediocrity of Pound s first three essays alone A Retrospect 1918 , How to Read 1929 , and The Serious Artist 1913 demonstrate why he is one of the 20th century s greatest critics These essays are invaluable not only because of their erudition, but a [...]

    7. It is not necessary to read the whole book In fact, I discourage reading much of his criticism Parts 2 and 3 unless one reads the criticized first, with some exceptions Even if you haven t read Dante, Homer translated , or the troubadours, I recommend reading these sections However, having yet to read Cavalcanti, Villon, Rimbaud, and a host of others that he addresses or references, I read selectively I recommend reading all of Part 1 Although his essay A Retrospect receives much attention, I fo [...]

    8. Okay, I didn t finish this bk, but as I ve already returned it to the library, I should chalk it up here and say a few words It s an exceptional book, but a lot of it pertaining to authors I either haven t read or whose work is too closely studied for my level of interest There is one chapter, about the general practice or writing,however,that I loved for its sparkling prose and clever comments.

    9. Experiencing this book has been an education, for which I am immensely grateful My fascination and curiosity of Pound have increased markedly I feel as if I can finally dig in and appreciate this man s enigmatic works, instead of remaining intimidated to the point of repulsion.

    10. Pound s thoughts about the nature of reading, the beauty of life, the importance of scholars and artists to the well being of a society make me completely woozy.

    11. Some of the essays on writing are fantastic, but how Pound s book reviews pass for literary criticism is beyond me.

    12. fra le altre meraviglie di questo libro, un paragrafo intitolato _traduttori dal greco primi traduttori di omero_
