I followed the discussion about EP´s mental condition and I need some
answers. What does it mean 'amateur psychotherapy'? Is it a opposite to
professional psychotherapy?
What is amateur and what is professional? Where is the difference? Does
not any of us need psychotherapy? Who is not ill? Is Pound´s sensibility
normal? If it would be normal, his verses would not probably hit us so
deep. Is beauty normal? And if it is not, does it mean it is ill?
I have got the original English text fragment from this discussion chat
some days before:
Do not move
    Let the wind speak
               that is paradise.
Just enjoy it as it is - and do not try to squeeze the author in a
labeled box according to the medicine books. He´s been a human - and a
great poet. Enjoy the beauty - do not dissect it!
