Ezra Pound and Modernism : The Irish Factor: Papers from the 25th Ezra Pound International Conference in
About this item
That Ezra Pound was the chief architect of Modernism in English and American poetry is well established. So, too, is the fact that in T. S. Eliot he discovered a peer, whose early career he fostered. Together, Pound and Eliot defined what Modern Poetry meant. But they also had peers in two great Irish writers: Yeats in poetry and Joyce in fiction. With them, they were major shapers of the Modernist style. The Age of Modernism was dominated by American and Irish writers who took part in reshaping the English literary tradition in the twentieth century. “Ezra Pound and Modernism” was the topic of the 25th Ezra Pound International Conference in Dublin in July of 2013, and the papers selected for this volume clearly demonstrate that.
