About the Author

Mary de Rachewiltz is an American poet and translator. She is the daughter of Ezra Pound and the violinist Olga Rudge. Though raised in Italy by foster parents, she frequently visited her father as a child. Rachewiltz married the Egyptologist Boris de Rachewiltz in 1946--the same year her father was deported to the U.S. to stand trial for treason. In 1971 her autobiography, Discretions, was published and she is also the author of several books of poems in Italian and English. Rachewiltz translated several of her father's works including The Cantos. She served for years as curator of the Ezra Pound Archives at the Beinecke Library at Yale University. Rachewiltz lives in Italy with her husband.

Reviews

This story by Ezra Pound's daughter adds to all other testimony something indispensable for a just understanding of his life and work; it is also in its own right a work of literature, a record of great human difficulties and great devotion.--Robert Fitzgerald
