About this product
- DescriptionThis correspondence with Ezra Pound covers the years from 1949 to very nearly the end of his life. It began as an offer to help, in his difficult days in St Elizabeth's, Washington, D.C. and it grew into a whirlwind of paper and communication for a few years; then it diminished after 1953. For the following years there was only a few scattered letters set off by some particular event -- a new magazine, a radio broadcast -- and finally the correspondence came to an end with the complications about Pound's coming to the World Poetry Conference at Expo in 1967.
- Author BiographyLouis Dudek was one of Canadaas most important and influential cultural workers. After gaining his PhD from Columbia University, Dudek in 1951 returned from New York to Montreal, the city of his birth, to take up a position as professor of English at McGill. Dudekas return to Canada marked the beginning of his efforts to revolutionize the Montreal poetry scene through little magazines and small-press publishing, providing alternatives to commercial presses and opportunities for talented young poets. In 1956 he started The McGill Poetry Series , which gave a start to several young poets, including Leonard Cohen. The author of numerous books of poetry, Louis Dudek died in 2001.
