"Be influenced by as many great writers as you can," said Ezra Pound. Pound was an "assimilative poet" par excellence, as George Bornstein calls him, a writer who more often "adhered to a . . . classical conception of influence as benign and strengthening" than to an anxiety model of influence. To study Pound means to study also his precursors—Homer, Ovid, Li Po, Dante, Whitman, Browning—as well as his contemporaries—Yeats, Williams, and Eliot. These poets, discussed here by ten distinguished critics, stimulated Pound's most important poetic encounters with the literature of Greece, Rome, China, Tuscany, England, and the United States. Fully half of these essays draw on previously unpublished manuscripts.

This third and final volume of A. David Moody's critical life of Ezra Pound presents Pound's personal tragedy in a tragic time. The first volumes of Moody's biography have been acclaimed as 'masterly' (Daily Telegraph), 'exceptional' (Literary Review), and 'invaluable' (New York Times Book Review). In this concluding volume, we experience the 1939-1945 World War, and Pound's hubristic involvement in Fascist Italy's part in it; we encounter the grave moral and intellectual error of Pound holding the Jewish race responsible for the war; and his consequent downfall, being charged with treason, condemned as an anti-Semite, and shut up for twelve years in an institution for the insane. Further, we see Pound stripped for life, by his own counsel and wife, of his civil and human rights. Pound endured what was inflicted upon him, justly and unjustly, without complaint; and continued his lifetime's effort to promote, in and through his Cantos and his translations, a consciousness of a possible humane and just social order. The contradictions run deep and compel, as tragedy does, a steady and unprejudiced contemplation and an answering depth of comprehension.

"This third and final volume of A. David Moody's critically acclaimed three-part biography of Ezra Pound opens at the outbreak of the Second World War. A tragic time for Europe and the world, the middle years of the twentieth century saw great personal tragedy for Pound. After blaming the Jewish race for the outbreak of the war and supporting Fascist Italy's role throughout, he was charged with treason and condemned as an anti-Semite. Following months in a US detention camp, he was committed to an institution for the insane where he would spend twelve years of his life"--Dust jacket flap.

Rassemblant les meilleurs chercheurs en poésie moderniste américaine, l'ouvrage met en perspective les problèmes posés par l'œuvre tentaculaire d'Ezra Pound, notamment les rapports entre texte poétique et référent extratextuel. Par ce biais, les liens entre la poésie et les autres 'arts sont repensés, de même que les enjeux de l'inscription de l'histoire, de l'économie et de la politique dans le poème. Au cœur des grands débats esthétiques et éthiques, le texte poétique de Pound nous parle dé nous, lecteurs, de projet pour l'humanité et des risques qu'encourt l'artiste quand les stratégies référentielles deviennent violence au monde.

Ezra Pound is one of the most visible and influential poets of the twentieth century. He is also one of the most complex, his poetry containing historical and mythical allusions, experiments of form and style and often controversial political views. Yet Pound's life and work continue to fascinate. This Introduction, first published in 2005, is designed to help students reading Pound for the first time. Pound scholar Ira B. Nadel provides a guide to the rich webs of allusion and stylistic borrowings and innovations in Pound's writing. He offers a clear overview of Pound's life, works, contexts and reception history and his multidimensional career as a poet, translator, critic, editor, anthologist and impresario, a career that placed him at the heart of literary modernism. This invaluable and accessible introduction explains the huge contribution Pound made to the development of modernism in the early twentieth century.
