my name is jeffrey daniel miller. i am a poet. i'm joining this list in
hopes that i can use the info i get from it to help me in my quest to get
past modernism and post-modernism.
pound is one of the poets i return to the most. i am completely facinated
with his work and his life. since i have started an epic my returns have
been that much more fequent.
i am currently working on an essay approaching pound from the perspective
i've had the hardest time dealing with: political. i am an anarchist. i have
had a breakthru tho (while reading a book that approaches pound and eliot
through their politics-- not condeming or excusing), and am trying to work
my notes into some recognizable form.
if anyone has any insights on the above i would -really- like to hear them.
i am looking forward to the discussions.
thank you for reading.
