Sample text

Whatever Pound's statements about his relationship with Yeats, from 1911 to 1913 the two poets shared their poems and opinions, often working together closely to promote the arts in London. When Yone Noguchi sent Pound a copy of his new book of poems, The Pilgrimage, Pound wrote back suggesting that "we who are artists should discuss the matters of technique & motive between ourselves. Also if you should write about these matters I would discuss your letters with Mr. S. " Mead was also the editor of The Quest, and he persuaded both Pound and Yeats to contribute to this theosophical quarterly.

This sense of the toncrete reality of visionary experience was attractive to Pound, and he found the same idea in Yeats's essay on "Magic" in Ideas of Good and Evil. " For Yeats as for Pound, a visionary experience is the one unquestionable reality for the person who undergoes it.

Between June 1912, when Yeats first met Tagore at the home of William Rothenstein, and August 1913, when Tagore sailed home to India, Pound and Yeats fell over one another to see who could lavish more ostentatious praise on the Bengali poet.
