Description
Poet Ezra Pound would deserve a place in the literary history of the 20th century if only for bringing to light the work of T.S. Eliot, Robert Frost, James Joyce, and William Carlos Williams, and his tireless activities on behalf of other poets, artists, and literary ventures were carried on in large part through his voluminous correspondence. Among the 384 examples here are the poet's letters to Margaret Anderson of The Little Review, Harriet Monroe of Poetry, Harriet Shaw Weaver of The Egoist, H.L. Mencken, and John Quinn, as well as to such poets and writers as E.E. Cummings, Ernest Hemingway, Amy Lowell, Marianne Moore, Eliot, Joyce, and Pound's old friend Williams. Of exceptional interest is Pound's abundant correspondence with the young unknowns who wrote to him for advice. "The tone of his prose criticism," says D.D. Paige in the book's introduction, "with its coruscations, its ellipses, its dogmatisms, its gay carnival air, its unwillingness to enjoy the safety gravity offers, its violence against entrenched stupidity and its championing of fresh writers––all that simply encouraged them to approach him."
