In 1909, the year Pound acquired this book, he also met Florence Farr (1860-1917), actress, writer, and socialist, who was the first English actress to appear in an Ibsen paly and was noted for her portrayal of the character Rebecca West in Rosmersholm. In 1907 she published a series of six essays on Ibsen. Pound's poem "Portrait d'une Femme" (1912) is based of Florence Farr. He also refers to her in Canto XXVII as being part of the "post-Ibsen movement" and alludes to her again in his 1934 "Treatise on Metre".
