Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Ezra Pound (1885-1972) was one of the most colorful and controversial figures in American literature. Born in Hailey, Idaho, he eventually founded the Imagist movement of modern poetry, which opposed representational art in favor of abstract forms. Although best known for his abstract, difficult, sometimes impenetrable poetry, Pound was also a composer, and this CD offers the only available recordings of many of his works, authorized by his family and publisher.
