Click the link below to read all about Ezra Pound. I knew a poet named Lester Blackiston who used to visit Ezra Pound at St. Elizabeth's Mental Hospital in Washington D.C. in the 1950s. In the Washington D.C. area everyone refers to Saint Elizabeth's Hospital as Saint E's. Ezra was held there for 12 years after WW2. They thought he was a traitor or crazy or both. Read all about it below.
