Sample text

Among Pound's "stuff" were many translations of the work of Paul Morand, a French writer Ezra admired. I was given copies by Bill Cagel of the Lilly Library and sent them to Dan, asking him if he would look at them and see if they were something he could use in his magazine, Antaeus. I have a high regard for Ecco. I don't care for all their books. I'm very limited in the poets I like. I think this is the result of having been under the influence of three truly great poets: Williams, Pound, and Thomas.

DANA: And he was reading your work. LAUGHLIN: Yes, but without much enthusiasm. DANA: Right. And he did say to you, "Well, I don't think that you should go on with this. " LAUGHLIN: How wise he was. James Laughlin 37 DANA: Well, perhaps you'd advise young writers in creative writing courses to go into publishing instead. LAUGHLIN: No, I think they should ... DANA: Stop writing. LAUGHLIN: I think that if they are real writers, they are going to write, and they are going to find out how to write from reading good books.

DANA: And you trusted his judgment? LAUGHLIN: Oh, absolutely. DANA: Why? LAUGHLIN: Well, he was so learned and such a good poet. DANA: Well, that's two good reasons. LAUGHLIN: No, he knew everything. He's an autodidact. He's read everything, and he has a photographic memory. He can remember everything that he ever read and can relate it to something else. DANA: I've always regarded it as a professional disaster that our paths never crossed. LAUGHLIN: He's a marvelous person. He's a very crotchety kind of person.
