About the Author
New Directions has been the primary publisher of Ezra Pound in the U.S. since the founding of the press when James Laughlin published New Directions in Prose and Poetry 1936. That year Pound was fifty-one. In Laughlin’s first letter to Pound, he wrote: “Expect, please, no fireworks. I am bourgeois-born (Pittsburgh); have never missed a meal. . . . But full of ‘noble caring’ for something as inconceivable as the future of decent letters in the US.” Little did Pound know that into the twenty-first century the fireworks would keep exploding as readers continue to find his books relevant and meaningful.

I'm not going to comment on Pound's Cantos, his poetry generally or his role in 20th century literature. If you want an expert opinion, find yourself a copy of Hugh Kenner's The Pound Era. Pound himself was a complex man who left complex tracks. The Cantos certainly remain worth reading (IMHO, they are aging well, and reading them against the backdrop of the current financial nonsense is entertaining, but perhaps I entertain easily?).
