Ezra Pound's interest in the work of Mina Loy is well-known, but while some critics have noted the impact of his work upon hers, little attention has so far been given to the possibility of reciprocal influence. My essay proposes that Pound's reading of Loy's early poems may have shaped the style of Hugh Selwyn Mauberley, and also that her later poem, 'Anglo-Mongrels and the Rose' might in turn have entered into a kind of critical 'dialogue' with "Mauberley". The essay examines the Laforguian terms in which Pound constructed his reading of Loy, and proceeds to distinguish her particular brand of 'verbalism' from Poundian 'logopoeia'.
