The Arrogant Poet You Love to Hate

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/arts/article/the_arrogant_poet_you_love_to_hate_20060602

In "Pound of Flesh," at the Odyssey Theater, Ezra Pound spars with Pvt.

If this private is not Pound's intellectual match, he more than matches the poet on moral grounds.
