BK. Ezra Pound


116. Reck, Michael. Ezra Pound: A Close-Up. New York: McGraw-Hill, 1967.

For several years before serving with the Occupation army in Japan, Reck visited Pound at St. Elizabeth’s, and before departure Pound gave him a ‘little mission’, to visit and give greetings to Kitasono (Ap, D29), Itô (Ap), and the poet and publisher Fujitomi Yasuo. Pages 96-101 here recount the visits, and include an essay about the history of the Vou club (see 46), given to Reck by Kitasono. Reck’s visit to Fenollosa’s grave at Miidera during the sojourn is mentioned in canto LXXXIX (63c).
