BI. Amy Lowell

34. Precosky, Donald A. ‘“Make Ezra Pound and the Whole Caboodle of Them Sit Up”: Florence Ayscough and the Lowell-Pound Feud’. Four Decades of Poetry, 1890-1930 2 (1979): 204-09.

An insightful look at the acrimony between Lowell and Pound, and Ayscough’s unwilling role in it, particularly regarding the translation of ideograms (see 10). Quotes letters written by Lowell showing that among her complaints about Pound’s ‘Chinese verse’ was that he was working with Fenollosa’s manuscripts recorded from Japanese sources.
