David Moody’s Ezra Pound: Poet: A Portrait of the Man & His Work: Volume I: The Young Genius 1885-1920 (2007)

Over the next few weeks or months, I will post all my reviews (“Tom’s Celebrations”) that appeared in Redactions: Poetry, Poetics, & Prose (formerly Redactions: Poetry & Poetics) up to and including issue 12. After that, my reviews appeared here (The Line Break) before appearing in the journal. This review first appeared in issue 12, which was published circa November 2009.

David Moody's – Ezra Pound PoetDavid Moody’s Ezra Pound: Poet: A Portrait of the Man & His Work: Volume I: The Young Genius 1885-1920 (Oxford University Press) is a long title for a book about the early years of Ezra Pound’s life, but the book is fantastic and it has so much detail. I don’t know how this was all accumulated, but it’s very insightful.

This might be my favorite Pound bio yet, though Humphrey Carpenter’s bio is wonderful, too. Halfway through Moody’s book, I was thinking, “I can’t wait for volume II.” If you want to know more about a young Pound, read Moody’s biography.//
