Between 1950 and 1956, The Hudson Review published a number of works by the modernist poet and critic Ezra Pound (1885-1972): translations of The Analects of Confucius (1950) and Sophocles' Women of Trachis (1954), as well as additions to Pound's long poem The Cantos, Cantos 85 through 89 (1955), and Cantos 96 and 97 (1956). During this period Pound also acted as a kind of unacknowledged advisor to The Hudson Review, often providing editorial advice, suggestions, and recommendations in his correspondence with Frederick Morgan. This series contains extensive correspondence, typescripts of Cantos 85-89 and 96-97 with extensive corrections and notations by Pound, as well as typescripts of Women of Trachis and of an unpublished poem entitled, ""To Sappho: Owed."" Additionally the series includes corrected page proofs of Canto 85, galleys of Cantos 96 and 97 (with notes and corrections from Pound), a group of printing plates for Cantos 86 and 87 (incomplete) and other material related to Ezra Pound, his writings published in The Hudson Review, and his relationship with Frederick Morgan.
