the real cmf

I was somewhat astonished to hear from a young Chinese woman that she was doing a part of her thesis work ( at a Chinese college) on the work of Ezra Pound.
She was astonished to hear that Marx was jewish;-)

More ironically, I wonder how many of his 'treating' doctors in the mental hospital were named something like Weiss, Greenberg, Freud, etc...;-)

Considering that Pound wasn't above blaming most of the economic disasters of the early twentieth century on Jewish bankers, I doubt that he would have minded having some Jewish doctors to blame his plight on. I'm thinking that his psychiatrists were more befuddled than anything else over what they were supposed to do with him. A diagnosis like "narcissistic personality disorder" seems pretty pathetic considering all the other possible diagnoses that they could have used.

How can I get access to a transcript of an appeal written by Robert Frost,T.S. Elliot & E. Hemingway, on behalf of Ezra Pound?

Romeo  Vitelli

I know the transcripts are part of the Library of Congress but I don't know if they are available online. I agree they would make fascinating reading.
