Ezra Pound (1885-1972) may be better known for his fascist political leanings than for his poetry. Yet, his greatest influence was probably that of patron: He spent his long life befriending, publishing, and supporting fellow poets and writers. His friendships cast a wide net and include many of the best-known poets and writers of the 20th Century. Many works by Pound and his literary friends are available on the Archive.
