About Ezra Pound

Ezra Pound was an American expatriate famous poet and critic and a major figure in the early modernist movement in poetry. He became known for his role in developing Imagism, which, in reaction to the Victorian and Georgian poets, favored tight language, unadorned imagery, and a strong correspondence between the verbal and musical qualities of the verse and the mood it expressed. His best known and famous poems include Ripostes, Hugh Selwyn Mauberley and his unfinished 120-section epic.
