Pound's Composition of Canto 16: 'jèntendis des voix
Draws on manuscripts, correspondence, and other sources in his detailed examination of Pound's composition of Canto 16 from its earliest stages to publication in the Three Mountains Press (1925). Noting that Pound finished writing Canto 16 at the same time he finished editing in our time, Beall speculates on the influence of Hemingway's chapter VI ("Nick sat against the wall"). Briefly comments on Pound's desire for Hemingway to read his "war" Canto and Hemingway's concern over Pound's use of multiple voices.
