The Pisan Cantos
Brasch PS3531 O82 P5
London: Faber and Faber
Because he publicly supported Mussolini’s fascism and broadcast his opinions on Radio Rome, Pound was arrested for treason by American forces after the war. Confined outdoors in a small reinforced wire cage at a military detention centre near Pisa, Pound experienced a dark night of the soul; his desolation is evident in many lines of his Pisan Cantos. Embarking on an intellectual and spiritual journey, the imprisoned Pound retrieves materials from his memory, cultural and linguistic fragments, in a spiritual quest for transcendence and enlightenment.
