BK. Ezra Pound

190. Iwahara, Yasuo. ‘Ezra Pound to Noguchi Yonejirô: Pound no Nippon tono kaikô’  (Pound and Noguchi: the beginning of Pound’s involvement with Japan). Kôgakuin daigaku kenkyû ronsô 28 (1990): 33-43.

Argues that it was Noguchi (see D15) who first stirred Pound’s interest in Japan, even though Pound did not believe Noguchi a talented poet. The former point is undermined somewhat by Pound’s earlier interest in Binyon’s work on Japan (see especially BC34a). A more detailed examination of Noguchi’s influence on Pound is 195.
