Mary de Rachewiltz
Mary de Rachewiltz (1925– ) is an American poet and translator. She is the daughter of Ezra Pound and the violinist Olga Rudge. Though raised in Italy by foster parents, she frequently visited her father as a child. Rachewiltz married the Egyptologist Boris de Rachewiltz in 1946—the same year her father was deported to the U.S. to stand trial for treason. In 1971 her autobiography, Discretions, was published and she is also the author of several books of poems in Italian and English. Rachewiltz translated several of her father’s works including The Cantos. She served for years as curator of the Ezra Pound Archives at the Beinecke Library at Yale University. Rachewiltz lives in Italy with her husband.
