Pound, Ezra: Hugh Selwyn Mauberley, v.1, 22 Nov 2007
A version of this recently appeared on Project Gutenberg, but it contains a lot of typos and errors. I hope that I have managed to correct them all.
The original poem had a few short quotations in italicised Greek characters. I have transliterated these.
The poem comprises eighteen short poems which are grouped into two sections. The first is a capsule biography of Ezra Pound himself, as indicated by the title of the first poem, which reads "E.P. Ode pour l'election de son sepulchre" ("Ezra Pound: Ode for the Choice of His Sepulchre"). The second section introduces us to the struggling poet Mauberley's character, career and fate. Readers have been misled by the fact that Pound assigns to every poem a title or, alternatively, a number. Thus poem I, "E.P. Ode pur l'Election de Son Sepulchre", is followed by poems II-V, that are numbered, while poems VI to IX are again given individual titles. As a consequence, in some websites poems II-V are reprinted as if they were parts II-V of "E.P. Ode". They are instead individual poems in a sequence of which "E.P.: Ode" is only poem I.
