Overview

Ezra Weston Loomis Pound (October 30, 1885 - November 1,
1972) was an American expatriate poet and critic who was a major figure of the
Modernist movement in the first half of the 20th century.


His own significant contributions to poetry begin with his promotion of
Imagism, a poetry movement which derived its technique from classical Chinese
and Japanese poetry to stress clarity, precision and economy of language. His
later work, spanning nearly fifty years, focused on his epic poem The
Cantos.
