"Through an incisive analysis of Pound's correspondence and writings, much of it previously unexamined, Surette shows how Pound's heroic efforts to inform himself on economic theory led him into confusion and conflict."--BOOK JACKET. "As the world spiraled toward war, Pound's program of economic reform foundered and he gradually succumbed to a paranoid belief in a Jewish conspiracy. Surette shows how this belief fostered the virulent anti-Semitism that pervades his work - both poetry and prose - from this time forward."--Jacket." ;
