A Lume Spento and Other Early Poems
Brasch PS3531 O82 A4 1965
London: Faber and Faber
Although he would later refer to this volume of poetry as ‘a collection of stale creampuffs,’ Lume Spento (With Tapers Quenched) is Pound’s first collection of poetry; its dramatic lyrics examples of Pound’s early poetic style. The title is a phrase borrowed from Canto III of Dante’s Purgatorio, and the poems reflect Pound’s fascination with the poetry of the troubadours.
