The first in a landmark three-volume project, this book brings together some of the world's leading Pound and modernist scholars to read critically the quintessential long modernist poem, The Cantos. Each chapter approaches either a single canto or a defined small group of cantos, providing a clear, informative, and interpretive reading that includes an up-to-date assessment of sources and an idea of recent critical approaches to the work. Each essay includes relevant background about the canto's composition, source-hunting material explaining Pound's quotations and references, critical context, and correction of previous critical work on the canto.
