EP Auf Deutsch - from Nomadics blog / Pierre Joris



Fifty years after Ezra Pound’s death, the Swiss/German publisher Arche Verlag is bringing out the first complete German translation of The Cantos, translated by noted Pound scholar Eva Hesse (who worked on this translation for some 60 years!), edited with commentaries by Heinz Ickstadt und Manfred Pfister. It is a bilingual edition that comes to 1480 pages, costs 98 Euros (a bit over $100) that has garnered excellent reviews so far. Funny/strange that they would use a Thornton Wilder quote on the cover.
