BK. Ezra Pound
197. Wells, Keiko. ‘Tsuki no natta Ono no Komachi’ (Ono no Komachi having become the moon). Bungaku 3/2 (1992): 132-41.
Follows a line of argument first suggested
by Miyake (in 187 and 191)
in finding that in his versions of Sotoba Komachi (17c) and
Kayoi Komachi (17d), and in manifestations of Komachi
in The Cantos (see 72a
and e), Pound conflates Ono no Komachi
with Demeter, and that she thus became for Pound a representation of both
the Earth Mother and the Moon Goddess.
