The title was given to John by the late Séamus Ó Cinnéide, who wrote for the Limerick Leader. It tells an interesting story. In the summer of 1975 Robert Graves (English poet, historical novelist, critic, scholar and classicist who produced more than 140 works in his lifetime) visited Ireland as guest of honour at a poetry seminar held in University College Cork (UCC). Graves, who had Irish ancestry, was expected to visit Limerick. His father, Alfred Perceval Graves (an Irish poet best known for 'Father O' Flynn') was an important figure in the Irish literary revival. His grandfather, Charles Graves had been the Anglican Bishop of Limerick. The anticipated visit would surely bring him into The White House, renowned as a haven for local literati. There was a picture of poet Ezra Pound hanging in the pub and the proprietor, Eammon Gleeson, removed it, so that Graves (who disliked Pound) would not be offended – hence the title of the Liddy poem!" (Kieran Beville, "Spotlight: Few ditties from Mr Liddy," Limerick Leader, 22 July 2021, free online). (For another poem based on the same incident, see John Jordan, "A Paella for Drivellers.")

During a memorial service for Pound on January 4, 1973, Lowell stated in his speech, "When I last saw Ezra Pound in Rapallo [March 1965], emaciated, neat in blacks and whites, silver beard, he looked like the cover of one of his books, or like an El Greco, some old mural, aristocratic and flaking.' He held up his blotched, thinned-away hands, and said, as if he were joking at them, 'The worms are getting to me.' Later, I must have said something about Hamilton or Pennsylvania College, where he had studied. He said, 'Yes, I started with a swelled head and end with swelled feet.' He was thinking of Oedipus. I said, 'You are one of the few living men who has walked through Purgatory.' Watching me like a cat, and catching my affectation and affection, he answered, 'Didn't Frost say you'd say anything once for the hell of it?'"
