Ezra Pound's Early Poetry and Poetics uniquely contributes to an understanding of Ezra Pound's seminal role in literary modernism. The book allows readers to judge more fully the reasons for Pound's influence on the direction twentieth-century poetry has taken. Central to this effort is Grieve's unfolding of Poundian "objectivity" in Pound's early poetry and poetics, which is shown to be not just an attitude toward reality but a self-conscious deconstruction of subjectivity as the privileged ground of poetry. Such a view takes issue with and corrects previous studies that have tended to relegate Pound's early poetry to the simplifications and naivetes of realism or failed romanticism.
