“Modern literature remains challenging to readers after a century as the dominant form of expression, but it is as worthy as ever of intelligent assimilation as successive Pound conferences have proved, none more convincingly than the 25th Ezra Pound International Conference in Dublin in 2013, from which this volume of papers was selected." David Pierce.
