BK. Ezra Pound

196. Lin, Jyan-Lung. ‘Pound’s In a Station of the Metro [3] as a Yûgen Haiku’.  Paideuma 21/1-2 (1992): 175-83.

Argues that In a Station of the Metro exhibits the ‘Zen mood’ of yûgen (see BJ22 and BK72), and that other work by Pound in the same period is representative of the principles of wabi (see BL48u) and aware (see BJ10a), but offers no evidence that Pound was aware either of these terms or their aesthetic possibilities.
