“Literature is news that stays news.” ~ Ezra Pound
Poet Ezra Pound authored more than 70 books and promoted many other now-famous writers, including James Joyce and T.S. Eliot.
Pound was born on October 30, 1885, in Hailey, Idaho. He studied literature and languages in college and in 1980 left for Europe, where he published several successful books of poetry. Pound advanced a “modern” movement in English and American literature. His pro-Fascist broadcast in Italy during World War II led to his arrest and confinement until 1958. Pound died in 1972.
