Ezra Pound's unfinished long poem The Cantos is regarded as a seminal work of modernist poetry - many critics, however, have sought to read the work as set apart from the author's politics. Reading the poetry alongside correspondence and unpublished archival writings, Ezra Pound's Washington Cantos and the Struggle for Light is an important new work on a poet who stands at the heart of 20th-century modernism. Building on his previous book John Kasper and Ezra Pound (Bloomsbury, 2015), Alec Marsh here explores the way the political ideas revealed in Pound's correspondence manifested themselves in his later poetry. Through an in-depth reading of the later cantos - Rock-Drill and Thrones - this book reveals the ways in which Pound integrated into his verse themes and ideas that remain central to American far-right ideology to this day: state's rights, segregation, the usurpation of the Constitution by the Supreme Court, history as racial struggle.
