Dear Demetres,
   I could organize a panel on Pound's literary engagemenet with diverse cultures and traditions and his subsequent introduction of those cultures and traditions to a wider audience--or could certainly give a paper on this topic concerning the Naxi. It would be a terrific opportunity for others to see some translation from the Har La Llu k'o manuscript so often referred to by Pound in the later cantos. And Pound's use of diverse cultural traditions--from ancient Greece and Media, to contemporary China and Africa, Pound incorporates so many cultures and traditions into the cantos that they become the cantos. 
   Let me know if there is an interest and I will write something up. As it stands, after two years fighting a flood that left our home flooded and all of our properties sitting in 12 feet of water for a month--and the rebuilding of everything over the past two years, we are done with the flood, so come August, I am getting back to the book on Pound and the Naxi. All the best, Robert

"Death was the first mystery, and it placed man on the track of
other mysteries. It raised [induced?] his thoughts from the
visible to the invisible, from the transitory to the eternal, from the human
to the divine."
                          from "The Ancient City," by Fustel de Coulanges. Page 17

option of offering two sessions at next year’s ALA.





And third, it would be nice if one of you organized a panel on EP’s
“treatment of warfare and its consequence. Please see the following call for
