Old Norse

This poem is sensational. Although Pound alludes to Eastern mythology in
this poem, the sacred tree that gives knowledge of unseen and unknown
knowledge is also in Old Norse mythology. Odin remains in Yggdrasil for (I
think) 7 days and learns ancient knowledge.

I like this poem for it represents to the picture of the man who stood to
see everything around him and explain the ideas which he has captured

Although I am not sure if Apollo was driven by love, lust or ego; By taking
a piece of her soul (a bow from the laurel) and placing it atop his head
Apollo was able to hold Daphne near (a crown/wreath of laurel honoring his
love for her). Love is complex with no defined boundries but many
degrees/levels...Yet there are rules of engagement, making it not only
wonderful but incredibly scary.

My search led me here...interesting perspectives on this poem...it paints a
picture of a relationship that transcends all other realms of understanding
and acceptance.

I love this poem..... I too desire loves unkown, as i too pursue
unquenched. Sad Story of Apollo.
