9780198704362: Ezra Pound: Poet: Volume III: The Tragic Years 1939-1972

This third and final volume of A. David Moody's critical life of Ezra Pound presents Pound's personal tragedy in a tragic time. The first volumes of Moody's biography have been acclaimed as "masterly" (Daily Telegraph), "exceptional" (Literary Review), and "invaluable" (New York Times Book Review). In this concluding volume, we experience the 1939-1945 World War, and Pound's hubristic involvement in Fascist Italy's part in it; we encounter the grave moral and intellectual error of Pound holding the Jewish race responsible for the war; and his consequent downfall, being charged with treason, condemned as an anti-Semite, and shut up for twelve years in an institution for the insane. Further, we see Pound stripped for life, by his own counsel and wife, of his civil and human rights.

Pound endured what was inflicted upon him, justly and unjustly, without complaint, and continued his lifetime's effort to promote, in and through his Cantos and his translations, a consciousness of a possible humane and just social order. The contradictions run deep and compel, as tragedy does, a steady and unprejudiced contemplation and an answering depth of comprehension.

About the Author:


A. David Moody is a Professor Emeritus of the University of York and the author of the acclaimed Thomas Stearns Eliot: Poet.

Review:


"It's hard to imagine a more comprehensive or impressive biography of Pound will ever be written." --Publishers Weekly, starred review


"Moody builds a strong case, based on meticulous examination of documented evidence, for Pound's sanity... Highly recommended for serious Pound scholars." --Library Journal


"Mr. Moody is a sympathetic and indeed exemplary biographer... With this final volume, aptly subtitled 'The Tragic Years,' Mr. Moody has written as wonderfully comprehensive and comprehending a biography as anyone interested in Pound - for or against - will want to have." --The Wall Street Journal


"Magisterial . . . . a masterful biography, as meticulous as its is broad-ranging." --The New Criterion


"Moody's magnificent accomplishment commands respect. His authoritative three-volume biography of Ezra Pound will stand for decades." --The Dallas Morning News


"Moody patiently weighs Pound's words and deeds, finding a brilliant writer and a stubborn but charming man who -- years later -- grudgingly conceded that he might have been wrong." --Shepherd Express


"Pound's life is also one of the greatest stories of 20th-century poetry..." -London Review of Books


"A grand three-volume biography.... One of Moody's gifts as a biographer is to present the complex strands of Pound's downfall without ever giving the impression that it was inevitable or even predictable.... Moody is an expert on modernist literature and makes an informed guide to both basic themes and complex allusions, confidently explaining many aspects of The Cantos. Moody has succeeded in bringing Pound to life and highlighting the vitality of his poetry. He gives modern readers an understanding of just how brilliant the dangerous, deluded and fascinating Ezra Pound was." --Spiked


"David Moody's life of Ezra Pound is complete, and a splendid work it is." --The Irish Times


"...[T]o work 'for the good of the people, against a corrupt oligarchy,' this was the dominant thread in Ezra Pound's political, social, and above all economic, commitments throughout his entire life, as the monumental biography of A. David Moody, now completed with the publication of the third, passionate, volume devoted to the Tragic Years 1939-1972, makes clear in full and accurate detail. ... Moody writes with strict scientific rigor, which does not exclude however--something rare among academics--a genuine and humane empathy with the author of The Cantos. ... A biography to be awarded absolute first place among the numerous accounts of Pound's life." --il Giornale


"Moody's work is an immense achievement, and must surely stand as the standard biography of Pound for the foreseeable future. His sympathetic and empathetic account of this deeply flawed genius is compelling in its tone, and comprehensive in its examination of the life. It is a monumental feat of scholarship, and one which must surely be seen as an exemplar of modern critical biography." --Shiny New Books


"A magnificent conclusion to a magisterial biography and it's hard to imagine a better researched account of Pound's life and work emerging for generations to come." --Irish Left Review


"Ezra Pound: Poet will surely stand for a long time as one of the great literary biographies; it is inconceivable to imagine that any other life of its subject will be necessary into the far future." --The Hudson Review


"... a brilliant performance... Moody's is by far the best researched, keenly judged, and in every sense comprehensive life of Pound we are ever likely to get. Altogether it is a crowning achievement for a very distinguished critic and scholar." --Make It New


"... attention to nuance characterises Moody's general approach to writing Pound's life ... [and] extends to readings of Pound's poetry ... His monumental biography is ... judicious and scrupulous." --PN Review
