Stephen Spender Poems. The English poet who eventually became known as Sir Stephen Spender, CBE was a writer whose main themes concerned social problems and the class struggles found in both Europe and America. He also wrote novels and essays and became Poet Laureate to the United States in 1965. He was born Stephen Harold Spender on the 28th February 1909 in Kensington, West London. His father was a journalist and his mother, Violet Hilda Schuster, a poet and artist. His education was a little patchy, with attendance at three different establishments before he found one that he liked.

I really enjoyed this selection of poems by Stephen Spender. I especially like that he selected the poems and wrote the introduction. Having never read any of Stephen Spender's poetry before this book it was a delight to see how a contemporary of Auden saw the world, particularly those that deal with the Spanish Civil War. It is strange that such poetry can so easily be a poem for all war, and not just the one.

I like Ezra Pound. He can be highly descriptive and elicit complex emotions with just a few words. Overall, however, he is indulgent to a fault in his obsession with centuries-old forms of poetic storytelling. More ardent Pound scholars will doubtless cry foul. But the reality is that Pound is often severe, serious, academic, and dry. When he’s describing the minutiae of the human condition: marvelous. Otherwise, he’s like a old, strict uncle more comfortable with dusty textbooks than family.

Fantastic read. It was absolutely worth the money!

Everything I expected. Would recommend.

If you care at all about modern poetry then you have to know something about Ezra Pound. His own poetry is beautiful, lyrical, sometimes mystical, and has a delicate respect for language. In addition he translated much Chinese poetry and produced the best translations of poems in the Catalan language. His influence is virtually endless. He was a very strong influence on T. S. Eliot, W. B. Yeats, James Joyce, Hemingway, Hilda Dolittle, Marianne Moore, Virginia Woolf, Gertrude Stein, William Carlos Williams, Robert Frost, and many more.

Yes, personally and politically he was strange to say the least, but this doesn't detract from the sheer artistry of his work.

This volume is a reasonable place to start if you aren't familiar with Pound and is also a reasonable volume to keep around for quick review. It contains samples of his Chinese and Catalan translations. There is good selection of his shorter poems and also a substantial sampling of the Cantos, his epic work.

Be aware that the design of the book is annoying; no index, no arrangment, no apparent plan of any kind.

But after all that you are left with the poetry and you can skip the design questions and read the poems. These poems are not difficult to read, the language is simple and simply beautiful. The rhythms carry you along and then sometimes drop you into understanding.

I give this selection 5 stars for the content and take one back for the poor book design.

If you are not familiar with Pound read them for your education, if you are familiar with Pound read them for the enduring beauty; but do read them and read them out loud.

A classic that never fails me. The language and the imagery are unsurpassed; the book used to live in my handbag, now it lives in my Kindle in my handbag.

This book arrived in mint condition and in a timely manner. I'm afraid that the book was hard to understand for me.

I read this selection only after having read so much else by Ezra Pound, a great poet. This selection covers both the early poems and the Cantos and is an excellent introduction to Pound's poetry and certainly an invitation to read much more.

This is a book of poetry: the above choices are appropriate for a novel.
