Description

Ezra Pound set out to invent and apply a sheath of new techniques and concerns for poetry, a number of which strike the beginning reader of his works as alien. The essays in this casebook introduce a number of essential Poundian concepts from explaining in some detail Pounds ideas concerning ways of organizing a long poem, to explicating the worldviews Pound developed and used as matter for his verse epic. The volume provides a selection of key criticism, including an article newly translated into English.show more
