I was looking for this quote in Ezra Pound:
"I have, on the other hand, found also in Homer the imaginary spectator, which in 1918 I still thought was Henry James’ particular property.
Homer says, ‘an experienced soldier would have noticed’."
I saw this recently in Beckett: "To the imaginary stranger the dwelling appears deserted." I use this too in my parody novel. Beckett has his imaginary stranger knock on the door!
