“He made mistakes and we have to take the good part of him, just as he did with others.–Mary De Rachewiltz
“De Rachewiltz has since fought a lifelong battle to separate Pound the poet from Pound the fascist and antisemite, which is why the emergence of CasaPound – now boasting 5,000 members – is so painful.
She rebuffs the suggestion that CasaPound’s lionisation of him is no more than he deserves. “Pound just quoted what Mussolini said,” she said. “This organisation is hiding behind Pound’s name for intellectual cover,” she added. “He made mistakes and we have to take the good part of him, just as he did with others. He fell into certain antisemitic clichés that were rampant in Europe and the US at the time.”–http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/jan/14/ezra-pound-daughter-fascism
