    What is this talking about?

    Richard Aldington mentions the specific prints that Pound used for his verses?

    He made a specific match between a verse and a print. He matched a specific verse with (to) a specific print. He took some verses and some prints and matched them up.

    So this is not talking about Pound but Aldington mentioned the inspiration every time he wrote a poem?

    No, 'he' in your quote means Pound.

    Have you read the passage? Pound's inspirations are not clear, as stated in the passage.

    Did you read the passage carefully? "Like other modernist artists of the period, Pound found inspiration in Japanese art, but the tendency was to re-make and to meld cultural styles rather than to copy directly or slavishly."
    I agree with Raymott, "he" refers to Pound.

    Have you listened to the video which that quote links to? The passage is not entirely clear. I think 'he' refers to Pound, but it's ambiguous.
