Ezra Pound: Canto LXX

Pound still hasn’t really gotten back into the swing of things, in terms of style. I’m just not a fan of most of these Cantos taking place in the early days of the United States or during the Revolutionary War.

Nonetheless, I very much enjoyed this little segment:

My compliments to Mrs Warren
                               as to the sea nymphs
Hyson, Congo, Bohea, and a few lesser divinities
Sirens shd/ be got into somehow.
                              Tories were never so affable
                              Tories were never so affable.
We shall oscillate like a pendulum.
slow starvation,  conclave, a divan,
                   what shall we do when we get there
