Sweet …

… Poetry by Anthony Burgess | Open Letters Monthly - an Arts and Literature Review. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

"The poem, a ballade in the style of Ezra Pound (one of Burgess’s favourite poets) …"
I'm not sure what that means. There's nothing Poundian about it, and the ballade is more usually associated with the likes of François Villon ("Where are the snows of yesteryear?").
