Ezra Pound (1885 - 1972)

  • About
  • Reviews
  • One of the key figures of the modernist movement, Ezra Pound played a formative role in the poetic career of T.S. Eliot as well as distinguishing himself through his own work. Born in 1885, Pound emmigrated to Europe after a childhood and adolescence in America. In London, he became very well connected in literary circles. His literary career is, however, marred by his turn to facsism. Over World War II he began broacasting on Italian radio for Mussolini's Government - by 1940 these were occuring once every three days. Unlike Eliot, however, he ultimately renounced his allignment to the ideology.
    Praise for Ezra Pound (1885 - 1972) 'The previously unpublished pages of an epic masterpiece offer fresh insights into its creation'
    The Guardian
