I happen to be one of those who read and enjoy Ezra Pound's early poems, those he tended to pooh-pooh later in his life. And I really enjoy reading these poems. He was a great poet, no question. Later of course he was a crank and his Rome radio broadcasts during World War II do amount to treason but at that time he was out of his mind. The early poems are from much earlier. I enjoy even the Cantos though I admit there are many challenges with them. Pound's poems like many poems of a great many poets are taken best in small doses for maximum reading benefit.
