Ezra Pound on Writers & Forming Opinions

On the Brain Pickings website, Maria Popova wrote an article titled Ezra Pound’s List of the 6 Types of Writers and 2 Rules for Forming an Opinion. In her article, Popova writes:
“Pay no attention to the criticism of men who have never themselves written a notable work,” Ezra Pound advised in his list of don’ts for beginning poets, originally written in 1913. More than two decades later, in 1934, Pound formulated his best advice on the parallel arts of reading and writing in ABC of Reading (public library), a fine addition to these 9 essential books on how to read more and write better.
