C.H. Sisson and Ezra Pound

C. H. Sisson on Dr John Dunn. First posted Tuesday, 17 March 2015 at 20:28

In a world where injustice is institutionalised and excessive usuriousness celebrated, I call to mind some words of C.H. Sisson:

“What Ezra Pound exposed in The Cantos is the monstrous aberration of a world in which reality is distorted, down to a degree never so comprehensively indicated before, by the pull of a fictitious money. It is a noble subject and may be the only possible one for a long poem in our age.”
