Pound/Cummings: The Correspondence of Ezra Pound and e.e. Cummings. Barry Ahearn, Editor.

Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press, 1996. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine tight, unread copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. Ezra Pound and E. E. Cummings carried on a long and varied correspondence from the 1920s until Cummings's death in 1962. This volume collects all of the important letters from this important friendship in the history of modern poetry. Throughout the correspondence both poets reveal themselves and their beliefs to a remarkable degree. Pound entrusted to Cummings details of his political outlook in the 1930s and 1940s, including his opinions about Mussolini's Italy. The letters to Cummings also shed new light on the question of Pound's sanity after World War II. Although he was diagnosed as mentally unfit, the letters generally show no evidence of paranoia, only of his characteristic eccentricity. Item #27418
