Look inside the book:
I cannot pretend to give the reader a summary of contemporary French opinion, but certain French poets have qualities strong enough to be perceptible to me, that is, to at least one alien reader; certain things are translatable from one language to another, a tale or an image will 'translate'; music will, practically, never translate; and if a work be taken abroad in the original tongue, certain properties seem to become less apparent, or less important. ...He satirized Flaubert's heavy 'Salammbô' manner inimitably, and he manages to be more than a critic, for in process of this ironic summary he conveys himself, il raconte lui-même en racontant son âge et ses mœurs, he delivers the moods and the passion of a rare and sophisticated personality: 'point ce 'gaillard-là' ni le Superbe ... mais au fond distinguée et franche comme une herbe'!
About Ernest Fenollosa, the Author:
2627Pound was at that time working on the poems that became Ripostes (1912), trying to move away from his earlier work, which he wrote later had reduced Ford Madox Ford in 1911 to rolling on the floor laughing at Pound's stilted language. ...It was in Ripostes, submitted to Swift & Co in February 1912 and published by them that October, that Pound moved toward more minimalist language, though Knapp writes that it is an uncertain volume, published when Pound had only begun his move toward Imagism; his first use of the word Imagiste was, however, in his prefatory note to the volume.
