Synopsis

This edition replaces Ezra Pound's Selected Poems 1908-1969 , and offers a revaluation of the poetry by conjoining early and late works within a new overview. Emphasis has also been laid on the interpenetration of original composition and translation within Pound's career, and the edition includes the complete 'Homage to Sextus Propertius' in its original lineation, Pound's early translations from Cavalcanti and the troubadours, and his late translations of the Confucian Odes, Horace and Sophocles. Unlike all previous selections from Pound's poetry, this edition provides annotation for all the early poems as well as a commentary on the later Cantos-indispensable to any reader wanting to follow Pound in his epic odyssey through ancient China, medieval Provence, the Italian Renaissance, the early years of the American Republic, and the darkness of the twentieth century.

Author's Biography

Richard Sieburth has previously edited Pound's Poems & Translations for the Library of America as well as The Pisan Cantos and Pound's Walking Tour in Southern France for New Directions. His translations include works by Holderlin, Benjamin, Scholem, Sceve, Nerval, Leiris and Michaux.
