Author's Notes: "Complexus-Syntaxus-Maximus" is a Double Dactyl formatted write with an obvious play on words. This poem touches on the acknowledged complexity of the syntax associated with many of the poems by "Ezra Weston Loomis Pound," a twentieth-century contemporary of T. S. Eliot, and like Eliot, one of the legendary great poets of that century. In fact, Pound and Eliot together, through their professional and personal association and their respective poems and poetic essays, ushered in an aura of newness and modernity in poetic thought and application, whereby they virtually reshaped and enlivened the very essence of traditional English literature which constituted a major departure from the earlier poetic practices of poets in the Victorian Age. In spite of this, Pound is well-known even today through his writings for his obvious panache for arcane subjects, rhetorical flourishes, and complexity in writing poetic verse -- making a many of his poems, at times, most challenging to read -- even among poets and even more so for the general reading public. Nevertheless, this does not and should not detract from his overall brilliance and the broad scope of his contributions that he made as a modern poet.
