About the Authors
  • This book develops key advances in Pound studies, responding to newly available primary sources and recent methodological developments in associated fields. It is divided into three parts. Part I addresses the state of Pound's texts, both those upon which he relied for source material and those he produced in manuscript and print. Part II provides a comprehensive overview of the relation between Pound's poetry and translations and scholarship in East Asian studies. Part III examines the radical reconception of Pound's cultural and political activities throughout his career, and his continuing impact, a re-assessment made possible by recent controversial scholarship as well as new directions in literary and cultural theory. Pound's wide-ranging intellectual, cultural, and aesthetic interests are given new analytic treatment, with an emphasis on how recent developments in gender and sexuality studies, medieval historiography, textual genetics, sound studies, visual cultures, and other fields can develop an understanding of Pound's poetry and prose.

    • Informs readers of new developments in Pound studies and its potential future
    • The book's extensive range of topics and methods cover major aspects of Pound's aesthetic interests and techniques in writing poetry
    • Provides readers with key insights into Pound and East Asian aesthetics, gender, musicology, historiography, and digital textuality
