“The artist is always beginning. Any work of art which is not a beginning, an invention, a discovery is of little worth.”
― Ezra Pound

About Ezra Pound: (1885-1972) “Of all the major literary figures in the twentieth century, Ezra Pound has been one of the most controversial; he has also been one of modern poetry’s most important contributors.”
Hugh Kenner stated (of Pound’s work as a poet), “There is no great contemporary writer who is less read than Ezra Pound.”
Pound supported little known writers like Frost, Joyce, T.S. Eliot. As a result of his political reviews/ commentaries, Pound was incarcerated from 1943 to 1958.
