Mary de Rachewiltz is fighting to protect her father's name. Her father was Ezra Pound. The Ezra Pound. The poet who wrote "The Cantos". But also, Ezra Pound the fascist. Whose radio rants about Jews and against U-S involvement in World War Two got him locked up for treason. It's that second legacy that's prompted an Italian neo-fascist group to call itself CasaPound and Mary De Rechewiltz wants them to stop using her father's name.
