Pound's "Egyptian poetry"

I'm too lazy to prowl my bookshelves getting the facts right here, but
roughly, Pound's first contact with egyptian poetry was when his
son-in-law translated some of it. Pound then translated the Italian of
_one_ of the poems. You can find it in a paperback entitled something
like "Egyptian Love Poems."

This was very late in Pound's life, and there is no Eliot connection.

Don't trust the facts above because they are from memory from several
years ago, but they point in the right direction.
