Introduction


I won't keep this up, but the aim is to read and comment on Ezra Pound's cantos at the rate of one a day. I've only read extracts before, and I know that it's going to get tough. There are chinese characters and egyptian hieroglyphs waiting for me, and references to madly obscure medieval and renaissance characters. There's probably also an unpleasant amount of anti-Semitism (as opposed to a pleasant amount?)

So that's my starting point. Let's start, AND what a start!
