Ezra Pound vs. Poetry: This is a Darn Clever Bunch

Ezra Pound

National Poetry Month. Now that we’re out of the embeddable video business, I can point you to what is probably my favorite poetry reading ever. We’re talking ever. When I first heard this 1958 Caedmon reading of Pound’s, where he delivers “Moeurs Contemporaines,” I almost drove off the road at “She is a LADY.” It is freaking priceless. Please listen.

In fact, there’s a slew of audio Pound here. You can buy this on the Caedmon Poetry Collection, which features a crapload of other poets as well. Excellent stuff.
