Evidently the bait was cast properly. The exact places in "The Cantos" that
I was thinking of.
TWL at least has a beginning and an end. "The Cantos" begins with "And",
goes rumbling off on a trip and ends as fragments in death".
The ideogramic method which is prevalent throughout "The Cantos" teaches
the reader to associate various parts into a whole. I find "The Cantos"
easily cohere around an original world myth devised by Pound. I use "myth"
exactly as Pound described myth to originate. Every time I read in "The
Cantos" the myth seems to grow and evolve. As with you I don't often agree
with the gist of this myth but my agreement is unimportant.
