“Ideogram, at least as a poetic principle, is not a Sinophile fad. It inheres in Aristotle on metaphor.” And: “On a page of poetry there are set in motion the intelligible species of things. words are solid, they are not ghosts or pointers. The poet connects, arranges, defines, things . . ." Hugh Kenner, The Poetry of Ezra Pound, found here, via Ray Davis's exquisite post here.
