About the Authors
  • This Companion contains fifteen chapters by leading international scholars, who together reflect diverse but complementary approaches to the study of Ezra Pound's poetry and prose. They consider the poetics, foreign influences, economics, politics and publication history of Pound's entire corpus, and reveal his importance in developing some of the key movements in twentieth-century poetry. The book also situates Pound's work in the context of Modernism, illustrating his influence on contemporaries like T. S. Eliot and James Joyce. Taken together, the chapters offer a sustained examination of one of the most versatile, influential and certainly controversial poets of the modern period.

    • Important addition to strong modernist list, especially T. S. Eliot
    • International team of scholars provide an introduction to the whole of Pound's life and work
    • Contains chronological guide to Pound's work, guide to further reading, and extensive bibliography
    • 1999 marks the fortieth anniversary of the completion of the publication of The Cantos (1930–1959)
