"This book offers a compact yet representative selection of Ezra Pound's poems and translations, covering his entire writing career from his early lyrics and the translations of Provencal songs to his English version of Sophokles' Trachiniae. Included are parts of his best known works - the Chinese translations, the sequence called Hugh Selwyn Mauberley, the Homage to Sextus Propertius. The Cantos, Pound's major epic, are presented in generous selections, chosen to emphasize the main themes of the whole poem.
