“Another struggle has been the struggle to keep the value of a local and particular character, of a particular culture in this awful maelstrom, this awful avalanche towards uniformity.”
Remark made by US poet Ezra Pound (1885-1972) in an interview published in the second series, published in 1963, of the Paris Review’s “Writers at Work”.
