The Breasts of Helen

Hugh Kenner, The Pound Era (Berkeley: University of California Press, 1971; rpt. 1973), p. 471 (on the U.S. Army's Detention Training Center, Mediterranean Theater of Operations, north of Pisa, where Pound was imprisoned):
North and east stretched mountains, one cone-shaped above delicate trees (he named it Taishan, for China's sacred peak), two to the left of it low and hemispherical (he named them the Breasts of Helen).
