Ezra Pound : poet : a portrait of the man and his work by Anthony David Moody( Book )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1,361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first volume of what will be a full-scale portrait presents Ezra Pound as a very determined and energetic young genius 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 the 1914-18 war. This is the first biography to put Pound's poetry at the heart of his existence, where he himself placed it, and to view his extraordinarily active life, his loves, and his creative effort, as a single complex drama. The poetry, the prose writings, and the personal life are all woven together into a brilliant narrative portrait of the poet as a young man. A second volume will carry on the narrative of his life and works from 1921, the year in which he took up residence in Paris. - Publisher

Tracing T.S. Eliot's spirit : essays on his poetry and thought by Anthony David Moody( Book )

20 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

T.S. Eliot's lifelong quest for a world of the spirit is the theme of this book by leading Eliot scholar A. David Moody. The first four essays in the collection map Eliot's spiritual geography: the American taproot of his poetry; his profound engagement with the philosophy and religion of India; his near and yet detached relations with England; and his problematic cultivation of a European mind. At the centre of the collection is a study of the Latin poem Pervigilium Veneris, a fragment of which figures enigmatically in the concluding lines of The Waste Land. The third part of the collection is a set of five investigations of Eliot's poems, dealing particularly with The Waste Land, Ash-Wednesday and Four Quartets, and attending to how they express and shape what he called 'the deeper unnamed feelings which form the substratum of our being'
Ezra Pound to his parents : letters 1895-1929 by Ezra Pound( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poet Ezra Pound (1885-1972) was the only child of Homer Loomis Pound (1858-1942) and Isabel Weston Pound (1860-1948). He grew up in Philadelphia, where his father was an assayer in the U.S. Mint; was educated at the University of Pennsylvania, and at Hamilton College in upstate New York; taught briefly at Wabash College, Crawfordsville, Indiana; then left America for London, where he lived from 1908 to the end of 1 920, after which he lived in Paris until 1 924, and then in Rapallo, Italy. His letters home reveal not only the warm affection, openness, and playfulness of the young man to his devoted parents, from schooldays through college and on into his life as teacher, poet, and critic, but also the ways in which he shared with them the ideas, influences, and experiences that went into the development of his exceptional poetic genius. He kept them in touch with his progress in realising his ambition to become a good and powerful poet, with what he was writing and doing, who he was meeting, his dealings with publishers, editors, and magazines, and his bold plans for reforms and revolutions. The letters are a rich mine of information about Pound himself and about the literary and social worlds in which he moved and had his being. They also display his epistolary idiosyncrasies and his inventive and witty way with words. Altogether they are of great human as well as literary and historical interest, and give an intimate insight into this revolutionary and influential poet's life and work. This is an essential volume for anyone interested in Pound, and an irresistible book for the general reader curious about literary life in the twentieth century

Ezra Pound : poet : a portrait of the man and his work by Anthony David Moody( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This third and final volume of A. David Moody's critical life of Ezra Pound presents Pound's personal tragedy in a tragic time. In this concluding volume, we experience the 1939-1945 World War, and Pound's hubristic involvement in Fascist Italy's part in it; we encounter the grave moral and intellectual error of Pound holding the Jewish race responsible for the war; and his consequent downfall, being charged with treason, condemned as an anti-Semite, and shut up for twelve years in an institution for the insane. Further, we see Pound stripped for life, by his own counsel and wife, of his civil and human rights. Pound endured what was inflicted upon him, justly and unjustly, without complaint; and continued his lifetime's effort to promote, in and through his Cantos and his translations, a consciousness of a possible humane and just social order. The contradictions run deep and compel, as tragedy does, a steady and unprejudiced contemplation and an answering depth of comprehension."--Publisher's information
