Eccentric genius

Ezra Pound is the focus of this morning's Today In Literature. Fascinating to wonder who and where the cryptic literary geniuses are in the culture today, those writing the high art work that demands great erudition to be understood, which once was published despite this but today probably is on the net somewhere, if anywhere at all, today's Cantos (Pound) or Finnegan's Wake (Joyce). What is certain is that they exist. Less certain is whether or not they ever will find an appreciative audience.
