Though Ezra Pound (1885-1972) is acknowledged one of the inventors of twentieth-century poetry, his own poetry still raises controversies about its subject matter, its intelligibility, and its aesthetic values while the man remains notorious for having seemed to be a vituperative anti-Semite and a fascist. Both he and his poetry have been charged with ideological immorality or obtuseness. For broadcasting from fascist Italy to America during World War II he was indicted for treason.

I have always admired Ezra Pound from afar, being always a bit apprehensive about reading his poetry, because I think in his poetry he tries just a bit too hard to realize and make true statements he has made in his delightful books on how to read poetry.

Cantos-The Cantos of Ezra Pound. New York: New Directions, 1995. 1885 Ezra Loomis Pound born on October 30 in Hailey, Idaho, to Homer Pound and Isabel Weston Pound. Pound’s grandfather was a congressman from Wisconsin whose connections obtained an appointment for his son, Homer, in the Idaho Territories as registrar of the Government Land Office. 1887 The Pounds leave Hailey for New York City, where they live with Uncle Ezra and Aunt Frank Weston. 1889-1897 Homer Pound becomes assistant assayer at the United States Mint in Philadelphia, where he will work until he retires in 1928.

Read's revolutionary work postulates that there is a hidden key to Pound's lifework, a hermetic coherence created from a pagan calendar that Pound devised and published in 1922 and from the Great Seal and Constitution of the United States. From these Read extrapolates an elaborate combination of heraldry, numerology, and geometry that he applies to Pound's entire poetic work. Discussing each canto separately, Read shows that the designs, paradigms, and arcana were deliberately constructed.
