David Markson’s Anti-Semites: Ezra Pound

In his novel Reader’s Block from 1996 David Markson shuffles together bits of pieces of fun facts, sad facts and other information about authors, artists and philosophers and combine this with quotes from the same range of sources. One of the repeated motives is anti-semitism in sentences which goes like «he-and-she was an anti-semite». These are never explained more, so I will collect some more information about the background of these people’s opinions.

»Ezra Pound was an anti-Semite.«

»All the Jew part of the Bible is black evil, an Ezra nicety.« Quotes -David Markson

The Jewish poet Louis Zukofsky had something to say about this:

»Through a series of biblical and contemporary allusions, “Nor Did the Prophet” addresses Zukofsky’s relationship with his mentor Ezra Pound and attempts to come to terms with Pound’s antisemitism by reconsidering the rhetoric of Pound’s controversial Pisan Cantos.« (From https://muse.jhu.edu/article/31599)Skjermbilde 2016-05-07 kl. 21.27.31.png

@arielxpink talk about his music and the jewish race and religion

From 10:51 on: Ariel Pink: “…race, not a religion, that means like..I’m from the tribe of Abraham. It means I can’t deny my judaism, based on their rules, like I can’t say ‘I’m not jew’. But the fact is I’m not of the bloodline.”

Interviewer: “You didn’t choose to be chosen.”

Ariel Pink: “I was mistakingly chosen, and now they’re just like ‘You’re jewish, come on!’ They just wanna, like cover it up. But that’s the kind of jews we have now a days, so fly-by-night jews. And I take religion very seriously, I actually do! I really really really respect it, but I think that all jews should be at the wall and pray now, not being rock stars.”

Derrida on Levinas on Israel

But today
Sinai
is also,
still in relation
to the singular
history
of Israel,
a name
from modern
ity. Sinai,
the Sinai:
a metonymy
for the border
or frontier
between
Israel and
the other nations,
a front and a frontier
between
war and
peace,
a provocation
to think
the passage between
the eth­
ical, the messianic,
eschatolo
gy,
and
the political,
at a mo­
ment
in the history
of humanity
and of the Nation-State
when
the persecution
of all these
hostages-the
foreigner,
the immigrant
(with
or without
papers)
, the exile,
the
refugee, those
without
a country
, or a State, the
displaced
person
or popula
tion
(so many
distinctions
that call for
careful
analy
sis)-seems,
on every
continent,
open
to a
cruelty
without
precedent.
Levinas
never
turned
his eyes
away
from this violence
and this distress,
whether
he
spoke
of it directly
or not, in one way or another.
