1. ( italics ) the canticle beginning with the words of Simeon, in Luke
2:29–32, “Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace.” The thought
of what America would be like
If the Classics had a wide circulation...
Oh well!
It troubles my sleep.
A Cantico to the Sun God?

I agree with the other comments, especially my friend from across the pond.
However, there is a particular "American Project" at work in Pound's
understanding of the cultural "loss" of the classics. It is afterall
America that breeds the troubled thought. By now (2005) this attitude is
global (from my perspective).

I do agree. But if you look at this poems is good example of how can
repetition, even literal, function in a poem. It doesn´t function most of
the time. This poems make me think in the repetitive chords of Lou Reed,
