A poet of this century who claims not to have been influenced by Ezra Pound deserves our pity more than our disapproval.”

- Ernest Hemingway


Ezra Pound

Of all the major literary figures in the twentieth century, Ezra Pound has been one of the most controversial; he has also been one of modern poetry’s most important contributors.

The importance of Pound’s contributions to the arts and to the revitalization of poetry early in this century has been widely acknowledged. Pound never sought, nor had, a wide reading audience; his technical innovations and use of unconventional poetic materials often baffled even sympathetic readers.

Early in his career, Pound aroused controversy because of his aesthetic views; later, because of his political views. For the greater part of this century, however, Pound devoted his energies to advancing the art of poetry and maintaining his aesthetic standards in the midst of extreme adversity.

Ezra has provided large political contribution to the world by writing essays on politics, and putting on the table the question of the Jews, especially in Europe.

He was a unique figure who will be remembered by all as not only a great poet, a great more intellectual, who fought until the last days for what he believed.


A Song Of The Degrees

I
Rest me with Chinese colours,
For I think the glass is evil.

II
The wind moves above the wheat-
With a silver crashing,
A thin war of metal.

I have known the golden disc,
I have seen it melting above me.
I have known the stone-bright place,
The hall of clear colours.

III
O glass subtly evil, O confusion of colours !
O light bound and bent in, soul of the captive,
Why am I warned? Why am I sent away?
Why is your glitter full of curious mistrust?
O glass subtle and cunning, O powdery gold!
O filaments of amber, two-faced iridescence!
