SUMMARY - " The ABC of Reading has been out of print for some years. In taking the book over for republication, we had in mind not only hat it is as useful, as necessary as ever, for the purpose for which it was designed, but that it should now be read for the light it throws on the principles of Mr Pound's own poetry" - for this is Pound's personal selection of essential reading with extracts, and pithy, sometimes scathing, commentary.....
