Fenollosa, Ernest; Haun Saussy et al. ed: THE CHINESE WRITTEN CHARACTER AS A MEDIUM FOR POETRY. An Ars Poetica / With a Foreword and Notes by Ezra Pound. New York, 2008. 256 pp. Illustrations. Cloth.
A new critical edition of this classic of modern English poetics, with highly useful apparatus and introductory material by a serious sinologist and scholar of comparative literature. Pound used Fenollosa's brief essay on Chinese poetry in order to 'break the pentameter' and shore up his imagist revisioning of poetry in English.
