Poet : A Portrait of the Man and His Work. 1, The Young Genius, 1885-1920Book - 2007
This first volume of what will be a full-scale portrait presents Ezra Pound as a very determined and energetic young genius setting out to make his way both as a poet and as a force for civilization in England and America in the years before, during and just after the 1914-18 war. This is the first biography to put Pound's poetry at the heart of his existence, where he himself placed it, and to view his extraordinarily active life, his loves, and his creative effort, as a single complex drama. The poetry, the prose writings, and the personal life are all woven together into a brilliant narrative portrait of the poet as a young man. A second volume will carry on the narrative of his life and works from 1921, the year in which he took up residence in Paris. - Publisher.
