…and theft. I suppose I’ve never thought of a list of the most popular book thefts. As one who spends a huge portion of a relatively non-existent paycheck on the purchase of books, keeping them stacked in some order of disorder, I’ve never really considered the possibility of nipping a book for resale. I guess one could say the whole thing is, stranger than fiction.
THE LAST EX-POUND:
“Poetry atrophies when it gets too far from music.”–Ezra Pound
re: your poundism
should all poetry be read aloud?
should all poets be musicians?
what is the chance that so much “poetry” is flat because the poets don’t have “ears”?
Sznn: So many questions, so little time. For Pound, the sound was an important part of creating meaning in the poem, an important part to his poetic ideas. As Pound claims “[t]here are three kinds of melopoeia, that is, verse made to sing; to chant or intone; and to speak” (61).
Are there poets that are tone deaf? Would that impact the rhythm of a poem?
Hey, I see the A-muse party over there on the right! Yay! A-muse is A-must!
B: A-must indeed! I think we need A-muse dance to go along with the Ferret dance.
