PoemTalk #41 on Pound's Canto III


On the latest installment of PoemTalk, Al Filreis and his panel of guests dig into Canto III of Ezra Pound’s epic life work The Cantos. The poem concerns an idyllic memory from the poet's youth, but is read, poignantly, by a scratchy-voiced eighty-one-year-old Pound in 1967. This episode features Kaplan Harris, Richard Sieburth, and Rachel Blau DuPlessis. See the show notes for more details.
