A Packet of Poems for Ezra Pound
Edited by Catherine Paul and Justin Kishbaugh
A Packet of Poems for Ezra Pound brings us back, as nearly as possible in book form, to the poetry reading that took place in Dorf Tirol, Italy on July 8, 2015 at 8 p.m., as a part of that summer’s Ezra Pound International Conference. The poetry reading is a crucial part of every biannual EPIC, a reminder that Pound’s poetry is no corpse to be studied only as a part of the past, but rather a constant instigator of creative work, an inspiration for living poets. This volume features more than a dozen voices resounding with Pound’s and singing his legacy.
