BK. Ezra Pound
209. Xie, Ming. Ezra Pound and the Appropriation of Chinese Poetry. New York: Garland, 1999.
Xie’s study, as the title suggests,
focuses on Pound’s ‘appropriation’ of China and his
work with Fenollosa’s manuscripts derived from Chinese sources,
but includes throughout passing reference to Japanese materials as well,
particularly haiku and the nô, Pound’s ‘fascination’
with which, Xie contends, ‘was relatively short-lived’, perhaps
a fair point about Pound’s relation with the haiku, but demonstrably
false regarding his understanding of the nô.
