Your mind and you are our Sargasso Sea,
London has swept about you this score years
Sargasso Sea

a calm area of the N Atlantic, between the Caribbean and the Azores. It
seems to me the Sargasso Sea is lucky to be if London was sweeping around
the sea. No! there is nothing! In the whole and all,
Nothing thats quite your own.
Yet this is you.
The Sargasso Sea is lucky London said there is nothing!

How could this be about Jean Rhys? It was written in 1912 - she wrote her
book in 1966. I doubt that she would take an extract of the opening line
of a poem insulting her and use it was a title for her book 5 decades

woman in Portrait d'Une Femme

According to an article published in 2002 in Modernisim/modernity 9.3 pp
389-405 by Rachel Blau DuPlessis, the woman is more likely Florence Farr
[Emery], an actress, a socialist, a theosophist, and a feminist. A more
general interpretation of it helps one's understanding of his muse and his
regard toward her.

portrait d'une femme is a very beautiful poem, however and opposetly of the
others, i think that Ezra Pound in this poem didn't discribe a woman but a
place, a monument or a statue.
