Ezra Pound has been called the inventor of modern poetry in English.

The Cantos have been called Ezra Pound’s intellectual diary, composed over the course of sixty years. An epic of great vision and complexity, it addresses the profound human issues in history and in our time. Readers often approach the work warily, daunted by Pound’s encyclopedic erudition, but the Cantos were written to be read first and foremost as poetry. Each of the nine groupings of poems can be seen as a fresh wave that swells out from and falls back upon the earlier cantos, extending them structurally, adding new layers of meaning.

Here---ta-da!---in all its profound mastery of idiom, phrasing, imagery, history, rant, rancid anti-semitism, beauty of line, and well seasoned with tag lines in Latin, Greek, French, Italian, German, and Chinese ideograms is the magnum opus of 20th century modernist poetry. Even the achingly beauty of Pound's incoherence at the end will stir the heart. He couldn't find it in himself how to end this rambling, chaotic, crass, gorgeous, limpid, challenging boa constrictor of a poem that contains everything Pound read and believed, even his "wrecks and errors." He tells us, "What thou loves best is thy true heritage." Eventually we get his message
after this survey of history: "To be men, not destroyers." A monumental poem.

I think the honorific came from Eliot who , when I was in college, was just coming to be comprehensible for the general reader. All that means is an artist sees what's going on while it is going but we muddle along and catch on about 30 or 40 years later.

Some of Pound's poetry is beautiful and accessible---River Merchant's Wife and his Sestina--for two.

But the Cantos are still a tough read for any reader.

I think that the Cantos are like Finnegan's Wake --something to be read with helps and probably studied in a grad seminar.

Finnegan can be undertaken thanks to the Skeleton Key..

For the Cantos, I relied on Cookson's Guide.

I don't know if there are seminars out there on the Cantos or the Wake; so I guess we can muddle on and hope the next generation catches up.

Look, The Cantos is incredibly difficult. If you don't like difficult literature, it won't be for you. That doesn't mean it's a "failed work" or that because it includes other languages than English it's not English literature. What can be said, however, is that Pound does a remarkable job of letting The Cantos translate themselves. That is, what is written in Chinese or Italian in one canto may often be restated in English twenty or thirty cantos away. If the work is read as a whole it coheres. Now, this coherence requires the reader to keep a great amount of information in his head and, indeed, The Cantos would benefit greatly from an annotated, cross-referenced edition, but if you are willing to put in the work, you will be richly rewarded.

This is a well constructed book of reasonable size and as such offers a good reading copy of The Cantos. The typeface is sensible and clear. It is a copy that can be stuck in a suitcase or satchel. Since it is hardbound, it is not lightweight or really intended for travel, but it is not a lavish collector's volume, so if it gets knocked about, so what?

I'm not going to comment on Pound's Cantos, his poetry generally or his role in 20th century literature. If you want an expert opinion, find yourself a copy of Hugh Kenner's The Pound Era. Pound himself was a complex man who left complex tracks. The Cantos certainly remain worth reading (IMHO, they are aging well, and reading them against the backdrop of the current financial nonsense is entertaining, but perhaps I entertain easily?).

Book arrived as advertised: brand new. And I had the joy of rereading Pound's Cantos cover to cover again. Only this time, with the benefit of having learned Spanish, French, Latin, Greek and Italian. A seminal revelation in Western culture, breathtaking poetry, amusing insights into the myriad figures of 20th century art -- from Beardsley and Whistler to Yeats and Eliot. You cannot understand the events in Western art and civilization without reading this book thoroughly.

There is really not much that can be said about the Cantos that has already been said, whether deserved or not.This edition includes so cantos an fragments which have not been in print and the book itself is model of printing which makes the experience more endearing.
The Cantos are great in what they do for the writer. "Elitism" is the nickname the idiot gives to the question. The Cantos include everything (yes, even Pounds' barbarisms). Man alive! Must I agree with the Bible to read it?
