End to Torment: A Memoir of Ezra Pound (Google eBook)
They had been engaged for a period, and what began as a brief romance developed into a lifetime's friendship and collaboration in poetry. Throughout the reminiscence runs H. D's conviction that her life and Pound's had been irrevocably entwined since those early days when they had walked together in the Pennsylvania woods and he wrote for her verse after William Morris, Rossetti, Swinburne, and Chaucer. Twenty-five of these poems, handbound in vellum by Pound and called "Hilda's Book," are published here for the first time as an epilogue to this important and moving document.

Great book by a crazyish lady about her former crazy boyfriend. Very poetic in style, told from a mental institution, it was one book where the footnotes definitely came in handy. Read full review
