  • POEM: The Purple Cow by Gelett Burgess (9/9/2015 9:12:00 PM)

    Years later, he wrote:
    O Yes, I wrote the purple cow
    I'm sorry now I wrote it.
    But I can tell you anyhow
    I'll kill you if you quote it.

  • POET: Ezra Pound (4/27/2012 11:40:00 AM)

    There was a very good reason why Eliot dedicated The Wasteland to Ezra Pound as Il Miglior Fabbro (the better maker) , as you will see if you take the trouble to read the facsimile editon of the manuscript, which shows how Pound's changes and suggestions created the poem we know today. It seems at least likely that he did the same kind of work on Prufrock. My problem with Four Quartets is that it contains passages that properly ought to have been edited out. - Christian Gehman
