This book examines how the modernist poetics exemplified in Ezra Pound's epic poem The Cantos are unavoidable bound-in with the ideological forces underpinning his advocacy of fascism. Overall it argues that Pound's reactionary urge to redefine a lost culture, couples with his sense of textual annihilation of a validating poetic centre, is the cultural ground on which his ideal of fascist republic rests.
