About this product
- DescriptionEzra Pound is remembered today as much for his modernist poetry as for his vocal support of Mussolini and, before WWII, fascism. During the Depression, he corresponded frequently with monetary reformers, ecomic historians, and journalists in the United States, Great Britain, and Italy. This antated edition of many of Pound's letters from the period reveal his passionate efforts to effect global ecomic change. They provide a contemporary, albeit subjective insight into the debates raging among orthodox and radical ecomists during the 1930s. Pound's support for such new ecomic theories as social credit and free ecomy lay behind his hopes that ecomic reforms could alleviate the evils of poverty and prevent global war. Ezra Pound's Ecomic Correspondence, 1933-1940 provides compelling new insights into a number of the most sensitive and controversial issues in Pound studies, including the way ecomic beliefs were mirrored in his poetry; his attitudes towards war, liberalism, and the press; his growing fascist convictions; and his developing anti-Semitism.
