It is impossible to overestimate Ezra Pound's influence on modern poetry, both through his own work and his furtherance of the careers of such men as T. S. Eliot, James Joyce, and William Carlos Williams. Perhaps the only other thing that can be stated unequivocally about Pound is that he is the most controversial figure in American literature. Beyond that, Pound is a man of endless paradoxes, in his poetry, his politics, and his personal life. The ultimate paradox, perhaps, is that the first real recognition he received as a poet from his native country (the Bollengen Prize, awarded by the Library of Congress) came while he was under indictment by the United States government for treason. The prize was for "The Pisan Cantos," written in an American prison camp. The storm caused by the award revived and intensified the arguments about Pound. Was he a genius or a charlatan, a traitor or "confused," a poet or a compiler? Was his life a tragedy or a farce? In this fascinating introduction to the life and work of the "man who led English and American poetry into the modern era," author Lander attempts to answer these questions and to approach an understanding of Pound's poetry.

Ezra Pound is widely considered one of the most influential poets of the 20th century; his contributions to modernist poetry were enormous. The critic David Perkins, writing in A History of Modern Poetry, summarized Pound’s enormous influence: The least that can be claimed of his poetry is that for over 50 years he was one of the three or four best poets writing in English ; Perkins continues, his achievement in and for poetry was threefold: as a poet, and as a critic, and as.
