In this essential guide to one of the most difficult yet rewarding poems of the twentieth century, William Cookson (who began corresponding with Pound as a schoolboy in 1957) draws on a deep and intimate knowledge of Pound’s life and work. This edition incorporates much new information and has been substantially revised and expanded.
Praise for William Cookson 'The briefest look at the index of poets represented here will testify to the work done by Agenda since it appeared in 1959.'
