Abstract

In this volume, Ezra Pound rediscovers poets and traditions from various cultures and times. Pound is particularly fascinated with the troubadours and poetry written in the Provençal language. He admires the condensed, direct expression of these poets, their values and ideals, seeing a place for these medieval values in the modern world. He includes essays on the troubadours, Arnaut Daniel, Guido Cavalcanti, Elizabethan Classicists, making their poetic traditions new.
