In for a Pound

If we can get part of a Canto of Pound’s—and if I find it good which is highly probable—I don’t see why we should shun it. The energies of words are hard to find—I should want my issue to be entirely a matter of the energies of words.
—Louis Zukofsky to Harriet Monroe, from Peter O'Leary's article on Poetry's 1931 "Objectivist" issue, at the Poetry Foundation.
