The poet Ezra Pound (1885-1972) was the only child of Homer Loomis Pound (1858-1942) and Isabel Weston Pound (1860-1948). He grew up in Philadelphia, where his father was an assayer in the U.S. Mint; was educated at the University of Pennsylvania, and at Hamilton College in upstate New York; taught briefly at Wabash College, Crawfordsville, Indiana; then left America for London, where he lived from 1908 to the end of 1 920, after which he lived in Paris until 1 924, and then in Rapallo, Italy. His letters home reveal not only the warm affection, openness, and playfulness of the young man to his devoted parents, from schooldays through college and on into his life as teacher, poet, and critic, but also the ways in which he shared with them the ideas, influences, and experiences that went into the development of his exceptional poetic genius. He kept them in touch with his progress in realising his ambition to become a good and powerful poet, with what he was writing and doing, who he was meeting, his dealings with publishers, editors, and magazines, and his bold plans for reforms and revolutions. The letters are a rich mine of information about Pound himself and about the literary and social worlds in which he moved and had his being. They also display his epistolary idiosyncrasies and his inventive and witty way with words. Altogether they are of great human as well as literary and historical interest, and give an intimate insight into this revolutionary and influential poet's life and work. This is an essential volume for anyone interested in Pound, and an irresistible book for the general reader curious about literary life in the twentieth century
Les Cantos by Ezra Pound( Book )
19 editions published between 1961 and 2013 in Italian and English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
##Cantos## chinois, américains, pisans, siennois, toscans, etc. Le chef-d'oeuvre d'un des écrivains les plus controversés du 20e siècle, sans doute d'un des plus grands poètes américains du 20e siècle. "Un résumé-collage, très personnel, de l'histoire de l'humanité" pour N. Zand. Pour A. Velter, l'oeuvre est plus proche de la "vindicte torrentielle" que du "message prophétique" (in ##Le Monde## du 20 juin 1980, p. 20). Accès difficile, très difficile

"Mary de Rachewiltz's autobiographical account, Ezra Pound, Father and Teacher, which first appeared as a New Directions Paperbook in 1975, is now reissued with a new afterword by the author. Set against the background of Fascist Italy and the Tyrolean Alps where she spent the early years of her childhood, the story Ezra Pound's daughter tells movingly reveals a side of the poet which is seldom touched upon, that of devoted father, and at the same time serves to illuminate many of the more difficult, personal passages of The Cantos. But the book is more than a mere memoir, for Mary de Rachewiltz is an accomplished poet and translator in her own right, guided in her craft under her father's tutelage; through her stylized, often oblique prose technique we are enabled to appreciate more deeply Pound's inner anguish during the war years and the strains put upon him by the circumstances of his life. Many of the scenes described are illustrated with photographs, while the narrative itself gleams with lines from The Cantos that light up the events of the author's life as her life lights up the poetry.
