  32. Broderick Barker says:

    The warp and weft
    Of right and left
    Will wend and weave
    And make a sleeve
    Up which they’ll shove
    The things they love
    So that their hands
    Are barren lands
    That they display
    For pay-to-play.

  33. ordine, controdine, e disordine

    CANTO 41 Gentlemen, again and again,

    Ole Ezra Pound starts with Thomas Jefferson, and he ends it with Mussolini. (This is, like so much in Pound, far from an accident: it was at this time that Pound produced a book titled Jefferson and/or Mussolini.)

    It all begins with with the famously recounted conversation between Pound and Mussolini. Pound said that he had “never met anyone who seemed to GET my ideas so quickly as the boss.” “The Boss” says, “Ma questo, è divertente.” This, most scholars agree, reflects one of those character flaws in Pound which he did not realize about himself: Mussolini likely would have said the same of just about any book handed to him by the author, and it is a throwaway compliment that would be used especially if one had nothing much to say about a text. Yet Pound held it up as evidence of the culturedness and wisdom of Mussolini, for he needed the man to be a kind of latter-day hero, someone able to hold his ground and shine with his own light when placed in the shadow of Malatesta.
