Happy Birthday, Ezra Pound



















Born 1885 in Hailey, Idaho, and one of the great Modernist poets, whatever the political delusions. So much of his writing remains of actual use. His author page at the Electronic Poetry Center contains links to other good Pound sites, including PennSound, which has a wonderful collection of Ezra reading his own work.
