BK. Ezra Pound
179. Laughlin, James. ‘Some Voices from Canto LXXIV’ (56a). In Pound as Wuz: Essays and Lectures on Ezra Pound. Saint Paul: Graywolf, 1987.
Includes reference (pp. 147ff.) to Pound’s
use of Hagoromo (13d),
and Kagekiyo (21a),
in the canto; Laughlin reports that he has ‘heard it said’—though
not by Pound himself—that while Pound was planning his operas, Le
Testament and Cavalcanti he ‘had the Noh plays in mind’;
includes passing reference to Yeats’s adaptations of the nô’.
