Ezra Pound is widely considered one of the most influential poets of the 20th century; his contributions to modernist poetry were enormous. He was an early champion of a number of avant-garde and modernist poets; developed important channels of intellectual and aesthetic exchange between the United States and Europe; and contributed to important literary movements such as Imagism and Vorticism. Pound and Eliot remained in touch with each other – Pound contributed frequently to the Criterion, and Eliot, through his position at Faber and Faber, saw many of Pounds’ books through.

Yeats, Pound and, above all, Eliot are the figures at the centre of his response to Modernism. The eight essays on Eliot included here provide some of the most illuminating criticism on the poet available, and some of the most practically useful to readers.

Their partnership sometimes went in unexpected directions: when Pound found Eliot’s stash of bawdy poems, he wanted to print them in BLAST magazine, but Wyndham Lewis would make no exceptions on his policy of avoiding four-letter words.

To their contemporaries, Pound described Eliot as having “more entrails than might appear from his quiet exterior,” and as having a special talent for satire.

In his celebration of the young TS Eliot (Review, 10 January), Robert Crawford writes at length about the modernity and the notable achievement of The Author: Guardian Staff. Consensus so uniform inevitably invites dissent, and it was only six years later that the distinguished critic Hugh Kenner published a provocative and influential book, one still essential for anyone striving to assess Anglo- American modernism.

Its title, The Pound Era, implicitly repudiated the widespread belief that Eliot had dominated his age. It was Ezra Pound, instead, who had reshaped the poetic and. By thoroughly examining T. Eliot and Ezra Pound collected and uncollected writings, James Longenbach presents their understandings of the philosophical idea of history and analyzes the strategies of historical interpretation they discussed in their critical prose and embodied in their poems including history." Originally published in In “The Anti-Semitism of T.S.

Eliot” [ NYR, June 6] Louis Menand implies that I excised an anti-Jewish sentence of Pound’s when I put the Pound and Eliot book essay, “Patria Mia,” into Pound’s Selected Prose – This is not so.

The words were removed by Pound himself inwhen he revised “Patria Mia” for book publication. Yeats' occultism has long been acknowledged, but this is the first study to show that Pound's early Pound and Eliot book with Yeats was based largely on a shared interest in the occult sciences, and that Pound's epic of the modern age, The Cantos, is a deeply occult work.

Reading the entire text of the "poem" as Eliot drafted it, we must be grateful that Pound told him to scrap so much of it. It's full of long, amusing sets of couplets describing dismal domestic dullness. Pound helped Eliot rescue just the highlights/5(22). The Poetics of Modernism: Ezra Pound and T.

‘Complimenti, you bitch’, Pound wrote to Eliot on 24 January ofon reading through the revised poem, adding, ‘I am wracked by the seven jealousies’. Ezra Pound was already in England when Eliot arrived and, as Eliot told his college friend, the poet Conrad Aiken, in a French phrase, Pound was the soul of kindness to the younger poet.

POUND AND ELIOT ON ULYSSES: THE CRITICAL TRADITION It is part of the mythology of modernism that we habitually discuss Ulysses and The Waste Land as if they were simultaneous artistic performances, twin children of the Zeitgeist.
