AMS Studies in Modern Literature, No. 33

New Essays in Ezra Pound and His World, No. 3


    In 1908 Pound arrived in London with his first book of poetry, A Lume Spento, in hand and would go on to start a revolution in English Letters. By the time he left in 1920, he had taken on the role of chief apostle of Modernism in literature. A little more than a century later, in 2011, scholars gathered to celebrate his life and work at the The Ezra Pound International Conference in London. Ezra Pound and London: New Perspectives collects a selection of the insightful, thorough, and thought-provoking papers given at the conference.
    The essays cover a broad range of topics, including biographical accounts of Pound through the recollections of his daughter, Mary de Rachewiltz, and his nephew, the later Peter Rudge, considerations of the place of London in the Cantos, discussions of Pound’s connections to other writers, re-examinations of Pound’s reading of the Classics and of the influence of the fine arts on his aesthetic vision, and reflections on Pound’s early political views.
