Ezra Pound

I have spent years reading Pound’s writing and thinking about his role in American modernism, Orientalist discourse, and the early American interest in haiku. I have explored his work as a writer, editor, publisher, and translator. I have also grappled with the relationship between his antisemitism, racism, being charged with treason, and mental illness. I continue to analyze all of these things, publishing some of my findings, and planning to pursue this work for many more years.
