That’s right, we got us an Ezra Pound study group going. It’s Chullsung, Jason, and me on Monday afternoons spelunking (and then trying to dig out way out of) his Bible-sized book of poems — or, you could say, his pagan-Biblical poem — The Cantos, starting 1:15pm weekly. Next week is Cantos 1-3, including earlier drafts if we can get our hands on ’em. I’m excited. (I think I’ll bring the relevant bit from The Odyssey as well, if I can find it among my books… but I think I left The Odyssey in Canada, and only have The Iliad in Korea
Unless you’ve had the joy of reading a book that makes your brains feel like spaghetti, you can’t know how pleased I am at this particular moment. Though maybe the analogy of having started a lacrosse club in a foreign country might work, sort of.
