Overview

From the early 1950s through 1968, poet and pre-eminent man of letters, Louis Dudek, maintained a lengthy, varied, and always stimulating correspondence with that irascible genius, Ezra Pound. Here, reproduced in all their remarkable idiosyncracy, are Pound's letters to his Canadian friend, introduced, transcribed, and fully annotated by Dudek himself.

Louis Dudek

Louis Dudek, born in Montreal, was educated both at McGill and Columbia University. In New York, as a young poet, he corresponded extensively with Ezra Pound. Back in Montreal, he joined the McGill faculty, where his lectures on literature became legendary. In combination with other key figures in the first and second waves of Canadian poetic modernism, he commenced many of the most important small magazines and literary presses of the mid-century. As a writer, critic, and cultural observer, his career has been dedicated to ongoing intellectual and artistic discussion. Justly identified as Canada?s premier man of letters, Dudek died in 2001.
