really liked it

If this essay was Pound's second-most-important editing job after The Waste Land, then this edition should be nearly as important as the Valerie Eliot edition of the original version of the latter with Pound's notations was in the '70s. In any case, Haun Saussy's intro is very helpful, and one gets a much broader picture of Fenellosa.

Ann Klefstad I really liked that book-- I used it as a text in about 1976, for a small class called "Poetry for people who don't like poetry". Been years since I've seen it. What do you think?
