Charting the Contours of a Controversial Poet

The subject of this portrait is the face of Ezra Pound (1885 – 1972) a complicated man with a formidable reputation and known for his virulent anti-semitic outbursts.

This angular and introspective looking face, lined with the contours of a life of controversy was mesmerizing to me and prompted this charcoal sketch.  [credit: Irish Times]

He made a great contribution to literature and is considered the poet most responsible for defining and promoting a modernist aesthetic in poetry. He advanced the work of such major contemporaries as W. B. YeatsRobert FrostWilliam Carlos WilliamsMarianne MooreH. D., James JoyceErnest Hemingway T. S. Eliot.

His best-known works include Ripostes (1912), Hugh Selwyn Mauberley (1920) and his unfinished 120-section epic, The Cantos (1917–69).
