A remarkably well-researched and engagingly written study of Ezra Pound, both in depth and in context. This book will serve both as an excellent introduction to this difficult author and his work, and also as a useful resource for scholars.
It is particularly valuable for its ability to deal candidly and compassionately with both the best and worst points in Pound's checkered career. One person found this helpful. A quick and enjoyable way to refresh one's knowledge of a crucial 20th century writer, especially for the interested but non-professional reader.

In Ezra Pound Reaktion Books, , Alec Marsh as a rule manages to efface himself and focus on his difficult and controversial subject--the early aesthete poet and inventor of modernist movements; the brilliant editor and promoter of art and literature but also of other people's work; the poet of epic ambition; then the fascist, anti-Semite and economic crank; the conspiracy theorist, reactionary, extreme right-wing agitator, and--finally--the old sage who must endure an insufferable abulia lack of will.
It's a life that is busy, fascinating, and agonizingly problematic--and one that is has been very difficult to write about candidly and honestly at the same time. Marsh does well with this business of writing about someone who was "a difficult individual.
In doing so, he helps the reader grasp concepts in Pound's life and work that would otherwise prove and have proved daunting. Marsh is excellent in his understanding of the poetry and better than any of the biographers in his understanding of Pound's economics and reactionary politics.
Indeed, one could say that the heart of this brief biography is to be discovered in Marsh's refusal to justify or ignore Pound's errors. The enforced brevity of the Critical Lives format may also have been an advantage since Marsh is forced to "use no word that does not contribute to the presentation"--and in doing so, to produce a life that is emblematic of modernism's contradictions, dilemmas, insights and great drama.
