This poem is filled with irony. It cleverly depicts Christ as a folk hero.
The implication being that he is no different from other mythical heroes
such as robin hood or king arthur.

This is probably my favorite poem about Jesus. He is portrayed to be so
strong and masculine, as is reflected in the Bible. Today we hear about
his gentle, non-judgmental and forgiving nature and tend to forget that he
was capable of righteous anger and did not mince words when he observed a
wrong. As he was also a carpenter we can assume he had a measure of
physical strength also.

This poem, in my opinion, is without a doubt the finest and most powerful
poem that Ezra Pound wrote. It gives such a visual image of Christ, not as
a weak preacher, but as a strong man of the Word. We would do well to take
note in our own lives.
