To be honest, as much as I treasured, read & re-read my old copy of Pound's ABC of Reading in my youth, I have always been a little uncertain about exactly what logopoeia means. I mean, I've had a vague concept, but nothing like the more detailed understanding I have -- or think I have -- about melopoeia & phanopoeia. Pound's own definition of the term is a metaphor, always a perilous form of technical description (though perhaps sometimes unavoidable).Â Jonathan Mayhew'sÂ discussion is clarifying & useful. I am particularly drawn to the thought experiment of imagining a word's "anti-context." That's just one of those lovely notions that will stick with me.
