Wow, Roxana, there you go again: making things new and beautiful! EP would adore you! The list of plays is a treasure.
     I am humbled and thankful that you put my article about Mary on the website. I am grateful. She inspired me so much and continues to do so. I pray that I am able to be at the Conference next summer. Love, Grace

Dear Poundians,

In a previous discussion some time ago, people showed interest in  
creative writing about Pound and deplored the fact that plays about  
him and his life were not more widely known.

Here was our chance to put our new website to the test. Archie  
Henderson compiled a very useful bibliography of plays about Pound  
that I have just uploaded to our website. Please have a look at  

What is good about the list is that it gives us statuses of the plays  
(whether in manuscript or published; whether performed or not). It  
gives synopses and in a considerable number of cases, the full text of  
the plays.
We are now able to see just what sides of Pound's life fired the  
writers' imagination: how they saw him, what words they put into his  

I have checked all the links at my end and hope all of them work for you too.
What was scattered and seemed lost is now at our fingertips.

A warm vote of thanks to Archie!


PS Maybe we could also have a list of poems, maybe? Or fiction, who knows?
