BC. Laurence Binyon

41. Iwasaki, Ryôzô. To Ezra Pound, 30 November 1956. P. 131 in Kodama (BK82), 1987.


Included in Iwasaki’s Japanese translation of Pound’s Selected Poems is a photograph of Fenollosa’s grave at Miidera. In this letter Iwasaki writes that the wooden steps leading to it and the wooden platform and fence encircling it were ‘built by Mr. Laurence Binyon and other foreigners’. The ‘other foreigners’ almost certainly would have included George Sansom (see 36).
