This chapter details Iris Barry's life after she heeded Ezra Pound's advice and moved to London in 1917. She found herself under the wing of a man ostensibly at the center of an intellectual haut monde, although not the more well-known coterie associated with Clive Bell, Virginia Woolf, and their Bloomsbury friends. After serving for two winters as a secretary to William Butler Yeats and gaining sufficient status to be able to “correct” his poetry, Pound became an adjunct of Yeats, marshaling aspirants to evenings with the great man and holding forth in various restaurants patronized by the avant-garde. The coterie surrounding Pound represented an emerging generation of artists and writers intent upon replacing the era of Thomas Hardy, Henry James, Arnold Bennett, and others with new ways of making art.
