Some Letters of Ezra Pound
Ezra Pound

Aug 1974
Paperback

Book Description
This correspondence with Ezra Pound covers the years from 1949 to very nearly the end of his life. It began as an offer to help, in his difficult days in St. Elizabeths, Washington, D.C., and it grew into a whirlwind of paper and communication for a few years; then it diminished after 1953. For the following years there was only a few scattered letters set off by some particular event — a new magazine, a radio broadcast — and finally the correspondence came to an end with the complications about Pound's coming to the World Poetry Conference at Expo in 1967.

Louis Dudek, born in Montreal, was educated both at McGill and Columbia University. In New York, as a young poet, he corresponded extensively with Ezra Pound. Back in Montreal, he joined the McGill...

Paradise
Louis Dudek
1550650327
January 1992
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Louis Dudek has been a poet, critic, teacher, modernist theoretician, editor, and publisher. His contribution to Canadian literature has been essential--Dudek is Canada's "first man of letters" as Wynne Francis so aptly puts it. Paradise includes essays on Nabokov's Pale Fire, the literary quarrel between Morley Callaghan and John Glassco, the idea of art, the poetry and prose of R.J. MacSween, the poetry of Ken Norris, and a major essay on myth (which was the 1991 F.R. Scott Lecture at McGill University). It is vintage Dudek--analytical, controversial, lyrical, intelligent, and never boring.

Zembla's Rocks
Louis Dudek
0919890725
January 1996
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Zembla's Rocks is Louis Dudek's first major collection of lyric poems since The Transparent Sea (1956). All of Dudek's voices are here: the lyrical observer of everyday events, the satirizer of culture and society, the meditative poet. This book confirms Dudek's impressive contribution to Canadian literature. Generally acknowledged as the pioneer of the Canadian long poem, Dudek has also been active as critic, teacher, modernist theoretician, editor and publisher for over four decades. In 1981 Frank Davel and bp Nicol said that "Dudek's centrality to Canadian poetry will become indisputably apparent. His work binds Smith, Scott, and Klein to the writing of the present generation. It links Canadian writing to the great modernist descent from Joyce, Pound, Eliot, and Williams."
