About this poem, Egan said, "I wrote that poem for Ezra Pound. After reading The Last Rower by Heymann, I was struck by the tragic silence of Pound's last years — and by the greatness of a man who could, in spite of all that he had achieved for others, for Eliot, Joyce, Yeats, Wyndham Lewis, in spite of having written some magnificent poetry himself, who could say at the end, 'I wasn't worth much.' There's a humility there, the humility of somebody who started as an arrogant buck, and slowly paid his dues."

I'm on the board of the International Rivers Network, which has been concerned particularly with where environmental issues meet human-rights issues around big-dam projects, many of which have proved destructive, displacing millions of people around the world. The IRN was founded to provide unbiased hydrological and financial analyses of these dam projects to the dam-affected people in the Third World. They've been enormously effective warriors in trying to help people acquire the tools to resist these projects. There's a wonderful book by Catherine Caulfield, Masters of Deception, about the early years of the World Bank's relationship to these dam projects, when the thought was that all of this hydro-development was uncomplicated good. They were very casual about the human and environmental costs of some of these projects. An example Caulfield gives is that for one of the early projects, the Narmada Dam in India, the entire budget for dealing with the 1.7 million people who were being displaced from a traditional life that's 2,000 or 3,000 years old was a 1-rupee bus ticket!"

Alongside the poems, I decided to look at Pound's pro-Fascist (vilely anti-Semitic) wartime speeches for Radio Rome. They were what landed him, after his arrest in 1945, in a 'death cell' at the US Army Disciplinary Training Center outside Pisa. It was the mental instability these hellish conditions incubated that saved Pound from the scaffold, in favour of an American mental hospital. It is not ethically straightforward to be moved by The Pisan Cantos. (What should we do with any echoes of the camps in Pound's DTC cage?) But for me, there is pathos in the famous section of Canto 74 when an African-American soldier brings Pound, in his medical tent, a packing crate to use as a writing table."

He lived for the next 15 years between Venice and Rapallo, those two towns in Italy. This poem takes place in Venice in 1968, when I was living there for a year and I used to follow the poet around from time to time when I would see him on the street. The opening stanza is a description of how one would go from the house where I was living to the house where Pound lived on Dorsoduro in Venice." (Poets on Screen, ProQuest Learning: Literature). Translated into Spanish by Adalber Salas Hernández as "Homenaje a Ezra Pound," Buenos Aires Poetry 6 (2016): 112-113, and in Wright, Lengua perdida: Poemas selectos, selección, traducción, entrevista y notas de Adalber Salas Hernández (Caracas: bid & co editor, 2016).
