[Literature] Stuck With Pound

From the Kirk Center:

Cathay: A Critical Edition
by Ezra Pound,
Edited by Timothy Billings.
Fordham University Press, 2019.
Hardcover, 364 pages, $35.

The Bughouse: The Poetry, Politics, and Madness of Ezra Pound
by Daniel Swift.
Farrar Straus and Giroux, 2017,
Hardcover, 320 pages, $27.

A lot of my colleagues and friends enjoy Ezra Pound, as of course do I. Some have a far deeper grasp of his work than I do, mainly because I come through it from a historical angle rather than from a purely literary one.

J. L. Wall writes on Pound, the new edition of Cathay, and the giant mark he left on 20th Century literature.
