Winner of the Ezra Pound Society booklet Prize 2014

Ezra Pound's sustained use of historic and medieval philosophical assets, quite these in the Neoplatonic culture, is widely known. but the categorical impact of the ninth-century theologian Johannes Scottus Eriugena on Pound's poetry and prose has obtained constrained scholarly recognition. Pound built distinct plans to put up a observation on Eriugena along his translations of 2 of the books of Confucianism, plans that eventually went unrealised. Drawing on unpublished notes, drafts and manuscripts among the Ezra Pound papers held at Yale collage, this e-book investigates the pivotal position of Eriugena in Pound's suggestion and, probably unusually, in his deployment of non-Western philosophical traditions.
