About the Author

Ezra Pound (1885-1972) was one of the most influential poets of the 20th Century and perhaps the key figure in defining and promoting Anglo-American poetic modernism. The Cantos - an epic poem written over 50 years - is his major poetic work.
Zhaoming Qian is Chair Professor of Modernist Studies at Hangzhou Normal University. His most recent book is Modernism and the Orient (University of New Orleans Press, 2013).

Reviews

"Pound, transcreating Chinese poetry in English, seems to have anticipated that making it new in our endless, inescapable present would increasingly mean returning to the old."--Pankaj Mishra
