    1. I didn't know much about Ezra Pound before taking a course on Modern American Poetry, just his name. Then, doing some research in the library, I found this amazing book. It really surprised me, because it is not exactly a biography, but something similar. The account of the three winters that Pound spent with Yeats immediately drew my attention; in fact, I was kind of jealous. Who would not like to spent time with his favourite poet, learning from him but also he learning from you! The book most [...]


    2. This is a look at the three winters that Pound and Yeats spent together - the books they studied, the plays and poems they wrote. It tackles the idea that Pound edited Yeats into a Modernist, and says that actually there is more proof that Yeats influenced Pound. It's an interesting read. Includes some otherwise unpublished poem drafts and letters. I think the most interesting chapter is the one that dealt with the war.


    3. Wow, this is a bizarre book. Longenbach is really something.His research is formidable (unpublished letters and papers plus everything else) and his insights and interpretations only add to the already bizarre facts. I've done a little blurb on this book on my blog beverlyajackson.
