5.0 out of 5 stars WHAT DID EZRA POUND REALLY SAY? 7 Jan 2007
By Laydee Liberty - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
"From 1945 through 1958 America's iconoclastic poet--the flamboyant Ezra Pound, one of the most influential individuals of his generation--was held in a Washington, D.C. mental institution, accused of treason. Pound had merely done what he had always done--spoken his mind. Unfortunately for Pound, however, he had made the error of criticizing the American government in a series of broadcasts from Italy during World War II and urged the United States NOT to get involved in this war.

And what Ezra Pound said turns out to be eerily appropriate for the horrible developments happening TODAY. The stories you have been taught about World War II are wrong. Pound spent 13 years in a mental institution (without a trial) for being right and for speaking the truth he was made to pay a heavy price.

Unfortunately, given the way histories tend to be written (namely, by the victors), what Pound did and what happened to him because of that are rather widely known, whereas what he actually said that got him into so much trouble with the U.S. Government and placed in a mental institution WITHOUT A TRIAL, IS NOT.

ORDER a copy of The December 1997 issue of The Barnes Review at The Barnes Review . org. Was Pound really a traitor--or a prophet? Read his words and you can judge for yourself. EZRA POUND'S RADIO SPEECHES from WWII IS A MUST READ for every American.

If you need more encouragement to take the plunge and buy this book, Check out THE BARNES REVIEW December 1997 Archive Issue, where you can read this one article at The Barnes Review archive. "What did Ezra Pound Really Say" by Michael Collins Piper. The entire issue is fantastic as TBR presents a fascinating in-depth overview of precisely what Pound had to say in those now-infamous broadcasts. (Amazon does NOT allow direct links to The Barnes Review. org) I BELIEVE THIS IS WELL WORTH THE READ!
