Poetry and the Right

If I ever went back to get a PHD I think a topic that is so interesting and lacks a literature is the avant garde right.
you know Italian Futurism, German Expressionism (Nolde forexample), Pound, Eliot, and many other permutations I think that current poetic conversations begin many of them from a Marxist critique and I think that much of the avant garde has an equal amount of origin in the right from conservative to fascist. This is not to agree with the politics of these Fascists, but I dont agree with Communists either. But I want to know what motivated Pound, or Balla or Nolde to be avant garde and Rightists?
