This Companion contains fifteen chapters by leading international scholars, who together reflect diverse but complementary approaches to the study of Ezra Pound's poetry and prose. They consider the poetics, foreign influences, economics, politics and publication history of Pound's entire corpus, and also situate Pound's work in the context of Modernism, illustrating his influence on contemporaries such as T. S. Eliot and James Joyce. Taken together, the chapters offer a sustained examination of one of the most versatile, influential and certainly controversial poets of the modern period.

Editorial Reviews

"A model of its kind, this companion will serve undergraduates and graduate students, general readers, lecturers in need of a quick brush up, and those who have read randomly about Pound and now need a clear path through the jungle....This reviewer gives it an unqualified recommendation." Choice
