This collection of essays brings together more than a decade of work on the poetry of Ezra Pound and particularly his modern epic The Cantos. These essays engage with recent developments in such fields as early medieval studies, modernism studies, Chinese and Japanese studies, textual criticism, literature and music, and digital scholarly editing to shed new light on Pound's sources, his scholarly and poetic techniques, and his relevance to contemporary thinking about poetry, editorial methods, and global intellectual history.

About the Author

Mark Byron is associate professor of modern literature and culture in the department of English at the University of Sydney and an Australian Research Council Future Fellow. He teaches and publishes across the genres and practices of modernism: prose, poetry, drama, and film, as well as textual and editorial theory. His current work is in developing digital scholarly editions of complex modernist texts and their manuscripts, including the Watt module of the Samuel Beckett Digital Manuscript Project. Another project, Modernism and the Early Middle Ages, has thus far produced the monograph Ezra Pound's Eriugena (2014) and a coedited dossier on Samuel Beckett and the Middle Ages in the Journal of Beckett Studies (2016).
