4. Morgan, Emanuel [Bynner]. Pins for Wings. New York: Sunwise Turn, 1920.
A series of short portrayals, none longer than ten
words, of Bynner’s acquaintances, several of which in their layout
on the page resemble period translations of hokku. Eliot (see CA10)
is ‘the wedding cake / of two tired cultures’, Pound ‘a
book worm / in tights’, Noguchi (see D15)
‘incense / for breakfast’. Published under the pseudonym Bynner
had used for the Spectra hoax (see BG6). Selections are reprinted in 17, 18, and 21.
