Description

Except for individual talents, already in development before 1916, moving on to full maturity, the century was over in its sixteenth year. Pound cancelled in his own mind the disassociations that had been isolating fact from fact for centuries. It doesn't matter, because there are plenty of other connections that ring true, and the point isn't so much whether the artists were aware of it as that, with the trained eye (or guided, as I was by the author), it's possible to recognize and appreciate the subtleties permeating their art.

But if he could be imperiously intellectual, he also went in for experimental fiction and wistful remembrances of childhood excursions, for dreamlike drawings and clever puns.
