Description
This first volume of what will be a two-part biography presents Ezra Pound as a determined and energetic young man with poetry at the heart of his existence (at 15 he told his father, "I want to write before I die the greatest poems that have ever been written"), 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 World War I. In this lively narrative, a Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2009, David Moody weaves a story of Pound's early life and loves, his education in America, and his years in London, learning from such writers as W.B. Yeats and Ford Madox Ford and exhorting his contemporaries to abandon Victorian sentimentality and "make it new." Here Pound forms his own Imagiste group, joining with Wyndham Lewis in his Vorticism, championing the work of James Joyce, Robert Frost, William Carlos Williams, and T.S. Eliot, and constantly on the lookout for new talent as International Editor for Harriet Monroe's Poetry magazine.

"Moody knows more about Pound's poetry than probably anyone else alive, and supplies careful, detailed readings of all the early books."NYTimes
