The Anathemata PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Anathemata free pdf '"The Anathemata" can scarcely fail to be counted a great book...It does what Epic is meant to do. It gives a philosophic view, tenable for our times, of the secret places where nature finds reconciliation with the Divine' - "The Listener". '"In Parenthesis" is one of the enduring works that came out of the first world war. "The Anathemata" is more obviously a poem, in the sense in which Pound's "Cantos" is a poem...Both his books - like his paintings - have a thrice-distilled quality of finality and impersonality, like Gothic stone-carvings or the paintings on the walls of the Lascaux caves' - Kathleen Raine.
