Throughout nearly sixty-five of writing, Pound specialized on the suffocating effects of time on poetry, aesthetic form, and history. Harmon examines Pound's strategies for dealing with time and arrives at a persuasive reading of Pound's works in general and of the The Cantos in particular. By concentrating on a single theme and technique, the author demonstrates a coherence in the writing that elucidates the corpus for both the specialist and the casual reader.
