    After spending 12 years in St. Elizabeths Hospital for incompetency, literary lion and ferocious anti-Semite Ezra Pound faces the terrifying prospect of being released. At first, Pound’s treatment by a young psychiatrist, Ann Polley, seems promising, but then the techniques become disturbing and Ann’s true purpose is revealed. Pound explores whether words can be as powerful as actions, whether revenge can be just, and whether sanity is possible when we’re made to see the world as it is and not as we would have it.
