Pound's sources for the Chinese Cantos were anti-buddhist and those
Cantos treat buddhists & eunuchs as lice, as corrupters of the state.
Whether Pound knew anything himself about Buddhism or what his own
thoughts on it were I do not know. But anti-buddhism plays the same role
in the Chinese Cantos that anti-semitism plays in the Cantos as a whole.
