Ezra Pound in Fascist Italy

My book studies Ezra Pound's prose of the 1930s to reinterpret his devotion to Italian fascism. Unlike previous discussions of Pound's adoption of Italian fascism, which focus mostly on his political and economic interests, my book reveals the importance of the cultural projects of Mussolini's fascist regime. By bringing Italian primary sources and new approaches to the cultural project of Mussolini's regime to bear on Pound's work (including unpublished material from the Pound Papers and untranslated periodical contributions), my book shows how Pound's writing came to embody the contradictions that come from involvement in Italian politics and culture.
