Is good he is really on the money The Pisan Cantos is probably the most well known and celebrated and controversial section of Pound s masterpiece pic The Cantos but many scholars would also argue that it s one of his best My personal favorites were Canto 79 the lynx Canto Canto 81 the most famous one with the well known pull down thy vanity section and Canto 83 Arrested at the Scala for Java Developers end of WWII by Italian partisans partigiani Pound was suddenly forcibly removed from his house and put into captivity at the US Military s Detention Training Center DTC in Pisa where he wrote these famous cantos Pound was put in a death cell or what he also calls a gorilla cage completely open andxposed to the The Qur'an, Morality and Critical Reason: The Essential Muhammad Shahrur elements and a bright light shining on his cell at night Eventually Pound had a nervous breakdown when like Odysseus his raft broke and the waters went over him Pound was arrested for his radio broadcasts conducted while Mussolini was still in power He was openly fascist in his political views but what probably got him in really hot water was his criticism of the American financial system and his scathing attacks on people like FDR When The Pisan Cantos finally published in the late 1940s went on to win the very firstver Bollinger Prize it *caused a great amount of protest outcry and downright indignation How could a fascist or traitor *a great amount of protest outcry and downright indignation How could a fascist or traitor awarded such a prize for literature many people said Well do you judge a poet on his controversial political beliefs or just on the uality of his poetry Some say the two can never be separated that they are invariably intertwined I disagree I am not a fascist in fact I probably lie at the opposite Vermeer to Eternity end of Pound s political spectrum Nonetheless I didnjoy this book for the most part It was "not Heaven to Betsy easy I struggled as most people do when they read Pound with his incredibly densesoteric references to Confucius Homer "easy I struggled as most people do when they read Pound with his incredibly dense So B.

Ll come out the other side a changed person as is the case with any great art and it becomes addictive You will then want to pick it up againsome dayonce you have recovered from the initial reading xperienceEzra Pound there is nobody uite like "him in all of literature Headstrong hardworking xtremely prolific xtremely foolish to borrow a word WCW was wont "in all of literature Headstrong hardworking xtremely prolific xtremely foolish to borrow a word WCW was wont use to describe him in his political views but also someone you MUST one day confront if you are serious about discussing modern or modernist literature Perhaps the most insightful view of the malaise which overtook the world in the first half of the 20th century Pound s attempt to liken Europe after WWI and during WWII as a hell like Dante s Inferno creates an intensity and a viewpoint which has not been matched in the last 60 years The 5 stars is for the meticulous and informed The Road From Home: The Story Of An Armenian Girl edition including detailed notes and commentary As to the content I find poetry difficult and often tedious and this text was particularly difficult I can t say I understood much of it Obviously it reuires far time andffort than I have at present Has a Exile and Pilgrim exasperating book of poetryver been written Unlike the Pound in his arlier Cantos Ez gets his head out of his political ass most probably because Ben and la Clara have been hung Ezra s political calculation have proven to be as astute as his nostalgic craving for state financing so we all may be rid of usury hey the Athenian state financed the building of the fleetPound brilliance and years of study do not and will never adhere The tragedy is not in the peasant s bent shoulders but in Pound s own If the naval battle of Salamis seems a far fetched connection to usury and Mussolini perhaps less than relevant well it s no surpriseBut the beauty of this book is in watching the grand battle between Pound s political and philosophical obsessions the shades of the dead moving among his many memories and finally most importantly the wondrous way the moment intrudes in his writing Where I lie let the thyme rise and basilicum let the herbs rise in April abundant 82 106 08Thank the gods for his nlightened moments when he brings us back to Hannah Montana: The Movie earth and most importantly compassion The first several books of the Pisan Cantos are of less interest to me because Pound still hasn t gotten out of his head Then in Canto 80 we get the first inklings when the tubercular shade of Aubrey Beardsley tells Yeats that beauty is difficultThe Canto builds to his brilliant mea culpa What though lovest well remains the rest is dross 81 134 35 And so in turn in the next section of the poem vanity is pulled down Hererror is in the not done all in the diffidence that faltered 81 173 74I have to get to work But The Last Two Cantos 83 84 the last two Cantos 83 84 some spectacular moments Pound is idiosyncratic annoying and obtuse Sometimes he is insane Other times he s a madman raving at the injustices of the world which is not the same If you want to read something modern that carries on Pound s tradition in a beautiful yet sensible way read Pictures from Brueghel by the wonderful William Carlos William But if you are dedicated to the chase you ignore Pound at your peril. Isplays some of his finest and most affecting writing marking an legaic turn to the personal while synthesizing the philosophical and conomic political themes of his previous cantos They are now being published for the first time as a separate paperback in a fully annotated dition prepared by Richard Sieburth who also contributes a thoroughgoing introduction making Pound's master work fully accessible to students and general reader.
