Abstract

This monograph on Ezra Pound's poetry and thought explores how Pound’s notions of language, sexuality and politics intersect in the programme for poetic modernism that Pound followed in his own work and advocated in the work of others. Contains detailed discussion of the writing of Ernest Fenollosa and Rémy de Gourmont, among other figures who were major influences on Pound’s thinking, and analyses the role of metaphor and metonymy in Pound’s view of the poetic image through detailed commentary on the work of French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan.
