Ezra in Pictures

Slightly off topic, since we're meant to be thinking about Objectivists, but, here again, all roads seem to lead to Ezra Pound. Which had me wondering what Pound looked like. Many of you may have already seen loads of pictures of Pound, so apologies if the following images are commonplace. I found Pound to look suitably crazy! Following are pics of a young Pound, an old Pound, and Pound being arrested in 1945 by Italian separatists (classic "booking" photo!).

handsome fella!

Thanks for posting these Anne.

In the eyes of the U.S. gov., in that last photo he WAS certifiably insane. I forgot their term they used for it--mild dementia or something.

Go American poetry!
