The Poetic Achievement of Ezra Pound
Ezra Pound is a central figure in the development of modern English poetry, yet his poetry is often regarded as too difficult. This classic study, available for the first time in paperback, provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to Pound's work. Michael Alexander--himself a poet and translator--brings out the life and originality of Pound's poetry and shows how he contributed to the modernist movement through his own writing as well as through his impact on Yeats, Eliot, Joyce and others.
