Letter from Poetry Magazine

Letter to the Editor

by George Gulick
Dear Editor,

Clive James has been having himself on as they say in Australia. Ravings in the Cantos? Yes, and in The Prelude and in all that's been collected of Eliot. None quite so ill-bred as James on Pound. I will not take time to copy in this letter the number of James's silly remarks. Read it again.

Cambridge, Massachusetts
