Example text

LAUGHLIN: He was indeed. Can you imagine the amount of poetry that was sent to him? He would read all that stuff. And he would write back to the poets. And he did introductions for any number of C-minus books of poetry. DANA: That's true. LAUGHLIN: He was infinitely, infinitely kind. But our relationship is fully documented in the William Carlos Williams Newsletter. Dick Ziegler discusses very sensitively our relationship, the rift we had at one time, and then how we made up later. DANA: Do you want to talk about that briefly?

Ezra came back, and he was going to try to get to Roosevelt and try to stop the war from happening. When he came to Boston, I got Ted to put him up at his house. Ted was very much intrigued with him and took him out to play tennis. Ezra womped Ted, and Ted really thought he was a good tennis player. Here was this man, ten years older at least, just whupped him. DANA: It's hard to imagine Pound playing tennis. But it's hygienic. LAUGHLIN: Well, his theory was very sound. He had the most formidable forehand that I have ever seen, a pivot torque forehand.

And I like his poetry. DANA: He has done some remarkable work- Turtle Island, for example. LAUGHLIN: But I don't have the openness to general poetry that I probably ought to have. DANA: Do you still do all the reading for New Directions? LAUGHLIN: No, what happens is that manuscripts come into the office, and if they're absolute junk, I mean real crap, the girl at the switchboard desk sends them back with a rejection slip. If they have any merit, they go next to Peter Glasgold, our editor, who is a wonderful guy, tremendously learned, with tremendously good taste.
