A chanting bard ...

... that, clearly, is how Ezra Pound saw himself: Pound at Penn Sound. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

It is interesting how artificial Pound's approach is (by which I mean no disparagement; I use the term simply as the adjectival form of artifice) both as regards the writing itself and the reading.
