Debra, Nancy and Ken
Thanks to you all for your ideas. I hope that it wasn't, as Ken suggests,
part of an unrecorded conversation at St E. I do not recall reading it in
any of Pound's published prose. That is not to say it isn't there and is
one reason why I asked the Pound list and this list about it.
I assure you that the question is not just simple curiosity. I have a much
larger project that this fits into.
It doesn't appear that a simple quick answer is going to be possible. I got
the quote from the Selected letters of Marianne Moore. I guess my next step
is to write the editor of that book and see if she has any idea.
