Read & Download The Pisan Cantos 107 Ezra Pound ã 7 Read & Download Free download é eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ã Ezra Pound Ezra Pound's The Pisan Cantos was written in 1945 while the poet was being held in an American military detention center near Pisa Italy as a result of his pro Fascist wartime broadcasts to America on Radio Rome Imprisoned for some weeks in a wire cage open to the elements Pound suffered a nervous collapse from the physical and emotional strain Out of the agony of his own inferno came the eleven cantos that became the sixth book of hi. Has a exasperating book of poetry ever been written Unlike the Pound in his earlier 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 enlightened moments when he brings us back to 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 Here error 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 have 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
