The birth of imagism

Here's an interesting review in today's Guardian. It looks as if the reviewed book shows what happens when you look at Ez with commonsensical eyes, which isn't necessarily a good or a bad thing. But this sentence, I think, shows why any fascination I have for Ez will never change into fondness:
Pound believed in the Great Man theory of history - and he was one of the Great Men.
Actually, it's pretty useless as a review. The reviewer has his own axe to grind, but I get no real idea of what line the book takes. The most useful part is the factual statement (or warning) that the book has 976 pages.
