From DJ Flap:
"The canon of Ezra Pound would be incomplete without a collection to represent the master's lighter vein. Here it is. Most of the pieces contained in this volume have been unavailable heretofore in book form; all have been long out of print. This is a book which adds a necessary dimension to Pound's accomplishment in twentieth century literature."
"Included here are Pound's long essay, which many believe to be autobiographical, called 'Indiscretions,' an assortment of facetious verses, his superb translations from the dialogues of Fontenelle, causeries on topics ranging from religion to the mores of moneyed society, editorials, denunciations, masquerades -- and much more besides."
"Pound's wit, barbed with the vigor of his profoundly integrated convictions, is displayed here to its best advantage. But students of modern literature will recognize that this collection is much more than a simple diversion. It offers an incomparable view of the milieu in which the avant-garde literature of our time has been created, and it presents Ezra Pound, the leader and cirtic, in some of his most trenchant moods. This is theory in action, responding to the needs of the immediate situation, whether it be an interview with Ford Maddox Ford or a new member of the Vortex magazine, Blast."
"Pound, who has done more than anyone else to shape the course of moder poetry in English, is presented here in an important but neglected aspect of his work."
