    Pasolini is one of my heroes, despite being a (rather unusual) communist. He was a great poet and a man of courage. I think it was very likely he was murdered for political reasons – he was one of those that begin to see through the “strategy of tension”-game played in Italy at that time. Many of his positions adopted in the 70s are very close to ideas later held by the French New Right. As the film clip shows he had great respect for the “fascist” Ezra Pound. I am certain that the “With Usura”-Canto must have been close to his own thinking that and partly inspired his confused and misunderstood, but fascinating last film “Salo”.

    Nice one guys! The common image of America the Uncultured lies shattered. An American being interviewed by a foreigner and he replies most fluently.

    America will rise again.

      Well, America proved its sense of culture by putting Pound into an insane asylum for a decade… and there was a reason why Pound had left the country by the 1910s:

      The thought of what America would be like
      If the Classics had a wide circulation
      Troubles my sleep,
      The thought of what America,
      The thought of what America,
      The thought of what America would be like
      If the Classics had a wide circulation
      Troubles my sleep.
      Nunc dimittis, now lettest thou thy servant,
      Now lettest thou thy servant
      Depart in peace.
      The thought of what America,
      The thought of what America,
      The thought of what America would be like
      If the Classics had a wide circulation…
      Oh well!
      It troubles my sleep.
