After reading The Last Rower by Heymann, I was struck by the tragic silence of Pound's last years — and by the greatness of a man who could, in spite of all that he had achieved for others, for Eliot, Joyce, Yeats, Wyndham Lewis, in spite of having written some magnificent poetry himself, who could say at the end, 'I wasn't worth much.' There's a humility there, the humility of somebody who started as an arrogant buck, and slowly paid his dues."

Free online and here. Introducing his reading of the poem, Charles Wright has said, "In 1958 the American poet Ezra Pound was released from St Elizabeths Hospital in Washington, DC, where he had been confined for 13 years because of his treasonable broadcasts during the second World War, and he returned to Italy. 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).
