and an unexpected change from the bard to Ezra...
before your gone, TK U MLJ LV NV
not sure of the title, rather don't like it, i know, i know, something to do with that Shakespearean thing and pound's antisemitism
not sure of your purpose for the 1st stanza,
do love the last
You're right about the title. It may give someone the impression that Pound was unjustly accused like Shakespeare's Shylock instead of one who railed against the bankers, I.e., the Rothschilds, during his propaganda radio broadcasts under Mussolini. Maybe "No Pound of Flesh" would have been better or something entirely different.
As to the first line, I think Pound's initial incarceration in Italy was "al fresco."
in the pound
getting back to this, i was disappointed that the lines were too short, and even after reading something like 20 poems, this was too short, that says something
