From the dust jacket-

"When Ezra Pound, saved from a criminal trial on grounds of insanity, was hospitalized in St. Elizabeths in Washington in 1945, the young poet Charles Olson went to visit him. They became friends. During many months of regular visits the two would argue about poetry, politics, life- and Olson, in an attempt to reach an understanding of this great and enigmatic poet, kept a record of these visits in notes, diaries, poems. That material, most of it never before published, is the basis of this extraordinary revealing book."
