T is for Tale: of the Tribe (Happy NEW Year!)

I made this reply at a forum to a question about the
Tale of the Tribe – the title of an unfinished book by
Robert Anton Wilson, and also the name of a past course
At the Maybelogic Academy, which may return as a self
Directed course in the future!

There is a book titled “The Tale of the Tribe”:
Ezra Pound and the modern verse epic by Micheal Bernstein.
Although RAW’s interpretation of the tale of the tribe and
The course work material expand way beyond Pound and poetry
This book IMHO still gives a wonderful “Rag bag of notes”
From which to tuck into. It might be classed as literary criticism
At a library or bookshop? but now after RAW’s touch,
This book has become a great research tool for me,
I would say a good introduction to some RAW TOTT material

The Chinese Written character as a medium for poetry by
Ernest Fenallosa proved to be another valuable, insightful text
For making the most of the class, and perceiving differently
You can find this text on-line.

The Cantos of Ezra Pound and
Finnegans Wake by James Joyce are two primary
Texts/maps/puzzles permeating the entire course,
And known universe – read them and re-read them Bob
Might say.

Here are the wiki entries for the major tribe players below,
If you can hold the vision – these characters with RAW himself
At the mixing desk are THE “tale of the tribe” – in some sense,

Happy New Year!
