Ezra Pound – Selected Poems and Translations

 

I really don’t like Ezra Pound as a person, but I can’t help but admire him as a poet. He’s one of those rare writers who seems to be blessed with an unnatural skill with the written word, but that doesn’t mean he was any less of a bellend.

Now that that’s out of the way, we can talk about the poetry! This is basically the best introduction to Pound’s work that you could get, because it spans his entire career and just gives you the highlights. I wouldn’t recommend reading all of his Cantos, for example, because they can get boring quickly. But dipping into just a few of them? It’s definitely worth doing if you’re a serious reader of poetry.

Pound will never be one of the great poets that I look up to, but he is an important figure and an influence on the people who’ve influenced me, so it’s the sort of thing that I feel is required reading. You should read it yourself, if you’re a fan of beat poetry.
