- The Poetry, Politics, and Madness of Ezra Pound
- By: Daniel Swift
- Narrated by: Tom Perkins
- Length: 10 hrs and 44 mins
In 1945, the great American poet Ezra Pound was deemed insane. He was due to stand trial for treason for his fascist broadcasts in Italy during the war. Instead, he escaped a possible death sentence and was held at St. Elizabeths Hospital for the insane for more than a decade. While there, his visitors included the stars of modern poetry: T. S. Eliot, Elizabeth Bishop, Charles Olson, and William Carlos Williams, among others. They would sit with Pound on the hospital grounds and discuss everything from literary gossip to past escapades.
This is a hit piece on Pound.
