Ezra Poound was a world famous poet. He moved to Italy; during this
period of voluntary exile, Pound became involved in Fascist politics, and
did not return to the United States until 1945, when he was arrested on charges of treason for broadcasting Fascist propaganda by radio to the United
States during the Second World War. In 1946, he was acquitted, but declared
mentally ill and committed to St. Elizabeths Hospital in Washington, D.C.
During his confinement, the jury of the Bollingen-Library of Congress Award
(which included a number of the most eminent writers of the time) decided to
overlook Pound's political career in the interest of recognizing his poetic
achievements, and awarded him the prize for the Pisan Cantos (1948). After continuous appeals from writers won his release from the hospital in 1958, Pound returned to Italy and settled in Venice, where he died, a semirecluse, in 1972.
