Pound is like the amateur better than all the professionals. He sets the standard, only to violate it himself in the semi-doggerel of the Confucian Odes. And then there's that dull didactic fervor, that humorlessness.

Just wanted to say that I agree. Particularly that Pound's didactic and humorless. Nice to read a poetry blog by someone who is at Kansas. I study poetics in the English department and will have to stop by to introduce myself sometime.

p.s. I have a blog too, but there's nothing interesting on there about poetry right now. http://eeink.blogspot.com/
