characters The Pisan Cantos ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ezra Pound Æ 7 Free download Read ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Æ Ezra Pound Ezra Pound's The Pisan Cantos was written in 1945 while the poet was being held in an American military detention center near Pisa Italy as a result of his pro Fascist wartime broadcasts to America on Radio Rome Imprisoned for some weeks in a wire cage open to the elements Pound suffered a nervous collapse from the physical and emotional strain Out of the agony of his own inferno came the eleven cantos that became the sixth book of hi. Perhaps the most insightful view of the malaise which overtook the world in the first half of the 20th century Pound s attempt to liken Europe after WWI and during WWII as a hell like Dante s Inferno creates an intensity and a viewpoint which has not been matched in the last 60 years

The only reason I decided to dock a star from this book is because of how bloody difficult it wasPound continues to both fascinate and frustrate me However when he is good he is really on the money The Pisan Cantos is probably the most well known and celebrated and controversial section of Pound s masterpiece epic The Cantos but many scholars would also argue that it s one of his best My personal favorites were Canto 79 the lynx Canto Canto 81 the most famous one with the well known pull down thy vanity section and Canto 83 Arrested at the end of WWII by Italian partisans partigiani Pound was suddenly forcibly removed from his house and put into captivity at the US Military s Detention Training Center DTC in Pisa where he wrote these famous cantos Pound was put in a death cell or what he also calls a gorilla cage completely open and exposed to the elements and a bright light shining on his cell at night Eventually Pound had a nervous breakdown when like Odysseus his raft broke and the waters went over him Pound was arrested for his radio broadcasts conducted while Mussolini was still in power He was openly fascist in his political views but what probably got him in really hot water was his criticism of the American financial system and his scathing attacks on people like FDR When The Pisan Cantos finally published in the late 1940s went on to win the very first ever Bollinger Prize it caused a great amount of protest outcry and downright indignation How could a fascist or traitor be awarded such a prize for literature many people said Well do you judge a poet on his controversial political beliefs or just on the uality of his poetry Some say the two can never be separated that they are invariably intertwined I disagree I am not a fascist in fact I probably lie at the opposite end of Pound s political spectrum Nonetheless I did enjoy this book for the most part It was not easy I struggled as most people do when they read Pound with his incredibly dense esoteric references to Confucius Homer Plato Dante Cavalcanti Yeats and the list goes on and to make it even difficult uotes famous writers poets and philosophers in their original language which means sometimes ancient Greek Latin Provencal Chinese French medieval French German and so on However this edition by Richard Sieburth contains excellent endnotes which admittedly are not exhaustive ie they do not explain everything in the book but they enable the patient reader to navigate the wild rapids of Pound s modernist poetry which includes references uotes a large number of proper nouns mostly people Pound knew or read and other explanations of the text While I admire Pound s poetry and writing and high level of esoteric knowledge it annoys me how he makes the text deliberately difficult for the average reader which is probably why he is often considered as pretentious And this assessment is not exactly wrong I would say However as one Yale professor said the reason he doesn t offer us any references or notes himself is probably because he wants us to sit in the library and experience the same joy that he did uncovering various pieces of information decoding ancient texts and coming to our own explicationsThis book is not for the faint of heart It demands patience and commitment But if you decide to read it you will come out the other side a changed person as is the case with any great art and it becomes addictive You will then want to pick it up againsome dayonce you have recovered from the initial reading experienceEzra Pound there is nobody uite like him in all of literature Headstrong hardworking extremely prolific extremely foolish to borrow a word WCW was wont to use to describe him in his political views but also someone you MUST one day confront if you are serious about discussing modern or modernist literature
