Huh, Ezra Pound is kind of a brilliant literary critic. I'll just try to forget what a fascist he was. Although once you know about it you can totally see it even in his literary criticism, with his talk of flabbiness and disease, of discarding and dismissing vast quantities of what he considers inferior.

I also like how he repeatedly refers to things (e.g. the work of Chaucer) as "creamy." Heh. Maybe he was hungry when he wrote that.
