Quality Over Quantity Said Pound

Grave of Pound on the cemetery island of San M...Image via Wikipedia‘It is the presentation of such a ‘complex’ instantaneously which gives that sense of sudden liberation; that sense of freedom from time limits and space limits; that sense of sudden growth, which we experience in the presence of the greatest works of art.  It is better to present one Image in a lifetime than to produce Voluminous works.’ Ezra Pound, A Few Don’ts For An Imagiste, Quot. in AVI English Literature by Jonathan Bateman, p91.
