About the Author

A. David Moody is Professor Emeritus of the University of York and the author of the acclaimed Thomas Stearns Eliot: Poet.


`Review from previous edition The story of Pound's early years is riveting, and well told by David Moody.' Mark Ford, Financial Times Magazine `The first volume of this grand opus is a significant event.' Andrew Motion, Guardian Book of the Week `Professor David portrays the first half of this astonishing poet's astonishing life. It is an authoritative and discriminating account, built on thoroughgoing research.' Michael Alexander, The Tablet `Moody's fine biography... makes the young Ezra Pound newly impressive and newly appealing.' Kevin Jackson, Sunday Times `[Moody] marshals Pound's staggering output of poetry, prose and correspondence to excellent effect, and offers clear, perceptive commentary on it.' The Economist `Moody communicates the central truth of this odd, driven life: that Pound lived for poetry, and lived his life according to what he saw as its demands.' Peter McDonald, Literary Review `This exemplary biography illuminates and exposes [Pound] with his warts and contradictions intact.' Andrew Biswell, THES `a splendid volume' Yorkshire Post `A serious searching biography.' The Scotsman `wonderful first instalment of the Pound story... a very satisfying biography.' Jonathan Wright, The Herald (Glasgow) `Moody's detailed narrative...tries to recapture the excitingness and literary brilliance of the colourful young troubadour' Stefan Collini, TLS `David Moody's splendidly researched and well-written book is greatly needed. . . . Moody must now be considered among the best readers of modernist poetry. . . . If you wish to understand why Pound is so important, Mr Moody is the indispensable guide. n Tim Redman ' Tim Redman, Dallas Morning News `Moody's first volume . . . is absolutely luminous. I'm tempted to say that this, folks, is biography as it ought to be written - if you've gotta read one biography of a major modernist (who isn't Joyce or Zukofsky), of course, then Moody's is the ticket. ' Mark Scroggins
