In an interview conducted by Burton Hatlen and Tom Mandel (San Francisco, June 1980), Oppen described his brief meeting with Pound in 1969: "We wept on each other in the New Directions office, that's what happened. . . . And I don't know how sincere he was or wasn't. . . . We met in Jay[Laughlin]'s office . . . And we were waiting for Pound to come in and ah, making chatter and finally Pound arrived with Olga and sat absolutely dead silent and everybody became nervous and started chattering and Jay had a moment of inspiration and said, 'Ezra, show George your new book.' And Pound in a sepulchral voice said, 'How do I know he wants it?' You understand well enough what that means. So I stood up and walked over to him and held my hand out and said, 'I want it'—a very dramatic thing—and Pound stood up and once he stood he was very close to me. We were in fact touching, and Pound began to weep, so I wept. So we went home. Neither of us could speak, so we went home."

When asked by Don Branning, "Who is the old poet in that poem?," Oppen replied, "Oh, people will think it's Ezra Pound. Just probably Louis Zukofsky. Could be Ezra."
