Introduction

Ezra Pound, a noted poet and critic, was a major figure in the modernist poetry movement of the 20th century Europe. Born in the United States of America in late 19th century, he immigrated to Europe at the age of 23 to establish himself as a poet. After a short stay at Gibraltar and Venice, he moved to London, where he lived for twelve years. It was during this period that he played a leading role in the development of Imagism.

He also had an eye for talent and working as a correspondent in various journals, he promoted many budding artists and poets. After the WWI, he shifted to Paris and from there to Italy, blaming Jewish bankers for the war.

During the WWII, he actively campaigned for the fascist regime of Italy, concurrently retaining his US citizenship. Consequently at the end of the war, he was arrested for treason; but on being declared insane, he was interned at a mental hospital in the USA, where he continued to write. On his release, he was brought back to Italy, where he breathed his last a few days after his 87th birthday.
