About this poem, Phyllis Webb wrote: "I once wrote a series of prison poems - not from prison, I'm glad to say - portraits of Socrates, Dostoevsky, Kropotkin, Ezra Pound. I have to ask, did I, did Tiff, have such a bad time in the womb, like Samuel Beckett who maintained he remembered it as a hellish confinement, that we are still working to expunge the memory? Ezra Pound, I don't have to tell you, the American poet who was captured by American soldiers in Italy during World War II, was accused of treason and held in a cage out in the open. Perhaps the vexing figure of Pound, particularly this image of him in the cage, attracts poets, novelists and playwrights not just because of his poetry but because an adventurous and serious writer is always testing limits, always shaking the bars of the cage of form."

Free online. About the poem, Williams wrote to Gilbert Sorrentino: "As for Pound I have every confidence in him. . . . Sometimes he gives me a pain in the ass, he also, with his pretensions. When he goes off the deep end he's just as bad as any mediocre as any other bum poet but when he is good he's a world beater. I love him deeply. On that score I have a poem for your next issue of Neon when you get around to it. It's about Pound written in one of my periods of disgust with him" (to Gilbert Sorrentino, 31 May 1956, quoted in The Collected Poems of William Carlos Williams. Vol. II, 1939-1962, p. 514, free online). In an interview, Gilbert Sorrentino stated that in early 1956 Williams "invited me to dinner, on a Sunday. So I went out and had dinner and then we became friends, as much friends as one could then become with Williams. At the time he was in his seventies and ill and I was about 24. But we continued a correspondence up until the time he died. And he decided that he would like to contribute to Neon — he would always contribute to a little magazine."

Olivastro offers the following explanation for the part of the poem concerning Pound: "Each line of this poem is composed of the same nine letters--A, D, E, N, O, P, R, U, and Z--which make up the name of an 'eminent author.' Additional clues are found in the poem itself, which is best understood by reading aloud and listening to the sounds of the oddly spelled words: 'You don't praise E.P.--you adores and pours. . . .' The grammar, obviously, does not always hold up, but, on the whole, the poem is remarkably successful. It concerns a man with the initials E.P., who was A NU ED (a new editor). He was OUR NAZE D.P. (our Nazi displaced person), and he OPEND DORZ UPAN EUROP (opened doors upon Europe). 'AZN'D 'E URNED A PO'Z PRAZE? (Hasn't he earned a poet's praise?) He is Ezra Pound."

He lived for the next 15 years between Venice and Rapallo, those two towns in Italy. This poem takes place in Venice in 1968, when I was living there for a year and I used to follow the poet around from time to time when I would see him on the street. The opening stanza is a description of how one would go from the house where I was living to the house where Pound lived on Dorsoduro in Venice." (Poets on Screen, ProQuest Learning: Literature).
