Faber, 1976, Hardcover, Book Condition: Good Condition, Dust Jacket Condition: Good, First Edition
This major biography of one of the great poets of our age presents a balanced account of the life and times of the charismatic, often contradictory Ezra Pound. C. David Heymann amply details Pound's background, but focuses on the later years, evaluating his poetry and personal life in terms of his politics, and vice versa. This book analyzes the Pound of the 1930s in Italy; the man who broadcast pro-fascist messages during World War II; the writer who has returned to America to stand trial for treason but landed instead in St. Elizabeth's hospital in Washington, D.C., for thirteen years; the aging poet who lived his remaining days in his beloved Italy. 372 pages.
