Mr. Smith,

I wonder, is it generally consider, (at least I got this impression
from the Cantos) that Pound had a distaste for the  contemplative mode
of living. What I'm implying is did he dispprove of the buddhists in
favor of the more politically oriented, Confusius-infused dogma.  Of
course he loved the poetry of both, no?
