Cantos VIII

And Kung said, "Without character you will
"be unable to play on that instrument
"Or to execute the music fit for the Odes.
"The blossoms of the apricot
"blow from the east to the west,
"And I have tried to keep them from falling."
The poem speaks of needing character for music and to execute music but he
still has not been able to keep the apricots from falling off the trees and
blowing from the east to the west. Maybe character is needed for music but
not to execute the music for the Odes.

Much of the Cantos seems to me rather incomprehensible and distilled as to
be illegible unless you were Ezra Pound himself or someone who had read and
studied exactly the same works as him. Nonetheless, the Canto here shows
parts of the poem are extremely lucid and clearly argued, as Confucius
himself would have advised.

In fact, sections like this and Canto 81 make me feel that some kind of
justification has to be put in place for the serious reading and study of
the Cantos as an essential part of contemporary literature. It is, simply
put, beautiful; clear, limpid and also sucessful in finding an unaffected
modern idiom. Pound's views were inexcusable, disgusting, insane, but I
cannot convincedly condemn someone whose own poetry has given me so much
pleasure, as here.
