Winter is icummen in,
Lhude sing Goddamm.
Raineth drop and staineth slop,
And how the wind doth ramm!
Sing: Goddamm.

Skiddeth bus and sloppeth us,
An ague hath my ham.
Freezeth river, turneth liver,
Damn you, sing: Goddamm.

Goddamm, Goddamm, ’tis why I am, Goddamm,
So ‘gainst the winter’s balm.

Sing goddamm, damm, sing Goddamm.
Sing goddamm, sing goddamm, DAMM.

Pound, along with Charles Bukowski, Raymond Carver and TS Eliot (and maybe even Bob Dylan), were the finest American poets of the last century.

If all you know about Ezra is from a name-check in a Dylan song, here’s a chance to expand your knowledge.

If you’ve never heard of Ezra, Seems like that lobotomy operation worked real well!

This encyclopedia is a concise yet very comprehensive guide to Pound’s life and writings.

Included are more than 250 alphabetically arranged entries on Pound’s acquaintances, publications, and interests, including: Olivia Rossetti Agresti Arabic History Catholic Anthology Chinese Literature Dance Des Imagistes Hilda Doolittle Thomas Stearns Eliot Fascist Quarterly Robert Frost Homage to Sextus Propertius James Joyce ….. And many many others!

The entries are written by roughly 100 expert contributors and cite works for further reading.

In addition, the encyclopedia closes with a selected, general bibliography.

Enjoy this great book!
