Blogging Pound’s The Cantos: Canto LII

This entry is part 39 of 49 in the series Blogging Pound's The Cantos

This post is one in a series of readings I’m posting of each poem in Ezra Pound’s The Cantos, a few at a time. The readings are atypical, for reasons made clear in my first post in the series. This post begins my work on the “Chinese” Cantos, starting with Canto LII.
