    Moscardino 1921 is a small wonder A thin volume of 70 pages, it is the first movement of an autobiographical trilogy and is a gorgeous piece of work Opening with the death of the paterfamilias ca 1850s , it follows the widow and three grown sons who now must take up the responsibilities of their high lineage and extensive estates Unfortunately none are quite sane, especially when there is a beautiful servant girl to arouse passions, jealousies and despair devastations follow It is only in the coda, decades later, that we meet Moscardino Buck being raised by his grandfather, the youngest of the three sons, on a rugged farm in the Tuscan hills, growing up in the aftermath of the earlier generation s long train wreck.Ezra Pound translated Moscardino in 1941 it wasn t published until 1956 in a limited edition and then not again until 2005 His work on the sequels is unfinished and will probably never be published This translation will be a revelation for those who know EP only for his literary manifestos and elliptically allusive poetry Here are phrases and images that startle but are absolutely apt, sentences with whiplash endings, crystalline storytelling and yet I did lose my way than once, had to back up and recover the thread of the story But have I just read Enrico Pea or Ezra Pound That perennial question about translation is especially pointed with an Ezra Pound,...
