The bowmen of Shu by Guy Davenport( Book )

"The story is a collection of images and anecdotes having to do with Gaudier-Brzeska’s life before, as well as during, World War I. The twenty-three-year-old French sculptor, in whose work and intelligence the poet Ezra Pound discerned the signs of a twentieth century renaissance, has left his London studio for the trenches. Readers see him sleeping on mud and ice, fighting lustily, meditating on art, war, and nature, asking London correspondents about the art culture he is cut off from, and discussing labyrinths with the scholar and fellow soldier Robert de Launay. “The Bowmen of Shu” is named for a poem of the same title by Ezra Pound that Gaudier-Brzeska quotes in letters to friends in London. The poem presents the feelings of ancient Chinese warriors fighting a lingering war with a stubborn enemy. Their fight, like that of the soldiers of World War I, is a stalemate, with many battles fought but no victory. Gaudier-Brzeska savors the closeness of the centuries-old Chinese emotions to his own. The bowman who says, “Our sorrow is bitter, but we would not return to our country,” Gaudier-Brzeska echoes in a letter describing the surprising stoicism he feels about his most miserable circumstances: “Whatever the suffering may be it is soon forgotten and we want the victory.”--eNotes study guide

Life & death by Robert Creeley( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If youth asks the mirror, "Am I the fairest?" then age, in Robert Creeley's voice asks, "Do you remember me?" And the poems of Life & Death are the mirror's answers: a collage of recollection and salvage, a gathering-in before winter's night. The first section, "Histoire de Florida," is a partial autobiography at a specific time and place. It captures the poet in an engaged and highly compacted moment that deliberately echoes Wallace Stevens's "The Anecdote of the Jar"--A reverberation from the poet's youth. The second section, "Old Poems, Etc.," contains classic reflections - from the doggerel humor of "'Present (Present)'" to parody of early Metaphysical models like George Herbert in "Echo's Arrow." The capstone of this section is the sustained "The Dogs of Auckland," which focuses impressions from an extended time spent in that city and becomes a resume of age and its effects, made vividly objective by the contrasting culture of New Zealand. Artists have always proved decisive company for the poet, and the third section contains the texts of three collaborations with the painter Francesco Clemente
