By A. David Moody
This 3rd and ultimate quantity of A. David Moody's serious lifetime of Ezra Pound provides Pound's own tragedy in a sad time. the 1st volumes of Moody's biography were acclaimed as "masterly" (Daily Telegraph), "exceptional" (Literary Review), and "invaluable" (New York occasions Book Review). during this concluding quantity, we adventure the 1939-1945 international conflict, and Pound's hubristic involvement in Fascist Italy's half in it; we come upon the grave ethical and highbrow errors of Pound protecting the Jewish race answerable for the warfare; and his consequent downfall, being charged with treason, condemned as an anti-Semite, and close up for twelve years in an establishment for the insane. additional, we see Pound stripped for all times, through his personal tips and spouse, of his civil and human rights.
Pound continued what used to be inflicted upon him, justly and unjustly, with no criticism, and persisted his lifetime's attempt to advertise, in and during his Cantos and his translations, a awareness of a potential humane and simply social order. The contradictions run deep and compel, as tragedy does, a gradual and unprejudiced contemplation and an answering intensity of comprehension.
