PAVANNES AND DIVAGATIONS by Ezra Pound is a representative collection in his lighter vein with some barbed wit. Included are Pound's long essay ''Indiscretions,'' a rare autobiographical writing, some facetious verses, his superb translations from Fontenelle, critiques of religion and wealth, as well as a miscellany of denunciation and editorials.
T.S. Eliot asserted that Pound was more responsible for the twentieth-century revolution in poetry than any other individual.
