Ezra Pound ð 6 characters Free read ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ð Ezra Pound characters The Pisan Cantos Isplays some of his finest and most affecting writing marking an elegaic turn to the personal while synthesizing the philosophical and economic political themes of his previous cantos They are now being published for the first time as a separate paperback in a fully annotated edition prepared by Richard Sieburth who also contributes a thoroughgoing introduction making Pound's master work fully accessible to students and general reader. ATTN Lieutenant Colonel John L Steele7103rd Disciplinary Training CompanyUnited States Army Metato ItalyJune 15 1945Re Ezra Weston Loomis Pound After a thorough examination of Ezra Weston Loomis Pound s mental state it is my professional opinion that while the patient displays no paranoia delusions nor hallucinations and there is no evidence of psychosis neurosis or psychopathy his prolonged exposure in present environment may precipitate a mental breakdown of which premonitory symptoms are discernible XIV It is my recommendation that the prisoner be moved immediately to suitable uarters and a transfer to the United States or to an institution in this theatre with adeuate facilities for care XIV be considered I am basing my conclusion of the patient s current mental state on several complicated factors that I ask you to consider First the patient is highly intelligent and imaginative The patient has granted me access to his journal which though at first I found to be nearly incomprehensible has provided valuable insight into his mind after a close and careful reading For example the patient is fluent in numerous languages including ancient Greek has a strong grasp of Chinese ideograms and is able to maintain coherence of thought while abruptly switching from one language to the next In one section of his Cantos as he calls this journal he writes of a sort of dwarf morning glory that knots in the grass which he follows with the medical term for psychological injury seuelae 37 38 The patient believes he has suffered great psychological trauma and is thus using this passage to express his pain through the image of a small beautiful flower which may represent himself being tangled in a field of grass which may be significant as he has been detained in cramped exposed conditions He goes on to write in French Le paradis n est pas artificiel paradise is not artificial 38 which in my opinion is his way of expressing that he still has a hope for the future and that his happiness is attainable He also seems to recognize that he is suffering tremendous psychological stress when he writes States of mind are inexplicable to us 38 but then follows in ancient Greek with dakruon tears or weeping repeated three times as if he is painfully aware how his present psychological state is affecting him emotionally Second the patient is a highly empathetic individual as evidenced in these Cantos with astute observations of idiomatic speech such as his mimicry of the black prisoners one of which he transcribes as saying Hey Snag what s in the bibl what are the books of the bibl Name em Don t bullshit me 51 but also of his obscure observations of birds sitting on electrical wires which he interprets and transcribes as musical notation with 8 birds on a wire or rather on 3 wires 63 Far from turning inward and morose the patient is keenly aware of every sensation and stimulation around him but like a SCR 300 used by our Signal Corps which is somehow tuned to every open channel the patient s mind seems to be like a new Signal Corps Private who is frantically trying to transpose everything coming in over that SCR 300 receiver faithfully but due to the sheer volume of information is experiencing enormous stress in trying to keep up If I may be as bold as to sound poetic it is as if the patient were tuned into the radio broadcast of all human civilization across all time and space and wants to make sense of it all not only for himself but for everyone aliveLastly the patient retains a firm sense of self in that he expresses very strong opinions about Jews the economy and has even reuested a meeting with President Truman concerning the state of the Japanese campaign While this may sound alarming and does seem to reek of arrogance and the grandiose his opinions remain consistent strangely coherent and while often reprehensible and perhaps even treasonous do not seem to so far present an imminent threat to himself or others Therefore it is my professional opinion that Ezra Weston Loomis Pound is not insane he is just an incredibly talented poet These two conditions are easily confused No Breaking My Heart Barefoot
