free read The Cantos ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Del Schwartz said about The Cantos They are one of the touchstones of modern poetry William Carlos Williams said Pound discloses history by its odor by the feel. Though Pound s Cantos are going onto the to poke at with a stick shelf I have actually read a number of the poems over the past few months and some of them are staggeringly stunningly wind and sea and stone coast wrought Hellenic dreambeauties These from the first 15th or so of the book that I have breached Then some are incomprehensible limbos Gass s essay on Pound in Finding A Form where he spends the first two pages deconstructing the Fate hidden in his name and the rest chalking up his failures and successes by degrees is well worth a good reader s time The Cantos linger on my shelf it s a gorgeous stark New Directions sometimes I find them open in my palms and I don t know how they got there often they achieve that place that rare poetry does where you feel like it s actually the voices of Time Mind and Earth at other instances you feel that you re having the golden fleece pulled over your eyes still I am intrigued fascism and mental instability are intriguing among many other things when poetry is added into the mix we re just all ambiguously rattling the chains of HISTORY and the voice through which it sometimes speaks clatters clatters

And If you say that this tale teachesa lesson or that the Reverend Eliothas found a natural languageyou who thinkyou willget through hell in a hurry opening lines of Canto XLVI You will not find a better summary of all that modernist poetry had to offer than Ezra Pound s decades long collection of poetry written with The Divine Comedy in mind that he simply called The Cantos It is one of the most voluminous complex ambitious and extreme works of literature ever released If you ever need to read one of Ezra Pound s writings to understand what he was about and how his understanding of life played out through his career life these cantos are all you need Knowledge the shade of a shadeYet must thou sail after knowledgeKnowing less than drugged beasts from Canto XLVII Ezra Pound was a main stay in modernistAmericanEuropean literature for decades He would become extremely controversial for his anti semitic pro Mussolini views and would spend his long post WWII life in seclusion in Italy after being released from US custody for assisting Mussolini during the war he was diagnosed as having advanced bi polar disorder Despite this he is given credit as having helped and counseled numerous writers over the course of his life And such authors like Eliot Joyce Hughes Langston Woolf HD Carlos Williams and Ginsberg to name a few would correspond with him over his life to debate get support and advice from him Never idle by no means by no wiles intermittentMoth is called over mountainThe bull runs blind on the sword naturans To the cave art thou called OdysseusBy Mol hast thou respite for a littleBy Mol art thou freed from the one bedthat thou may st return to anotherThe stars are not in her countingTo her they are but wandering holes from Canto XLVIITry as I might I find it nearly impossible to give a simple summary of The Cantos itself These cantos are filled with Chinese and Japanese characters and make references to the Noh plays of Japan as well as a section of cantos on Chinese history It is a book or collection that grapples with world history through culture economics and general governance So many figures are referenced or made focal points of full sections such as John Adams Confucius Pietro Leopoldo Edward Coke and the poetry of Homer and TS Eliot are among many that show up His blending of history and economics as to be singled out for distinction Only the antisemitism that appears during The Pisan Cantos onwards and praise of Italian fascism prevent this work from being perfect You could argue that his worsening untreated bi polar disorder was not helping but stillnot coolI would be remiss not to comment on one of the few central themes flowing throughout The Cantos his hatred of usury As defined in the edition of The Cantos that I have in front of me usury is a charge for the use of purchasing power without regard to production often without the regard to the possibilities of production This hatred of usury leads to one of the most famous canto from this collection and which Pound felt essential to understanding these poems Canto XLV With Usura With usura hath no man a house of good stoneeach block cut smooth and well fittingthat design might cover their facewith usurahath no man a painted paradise on his church wallharpes et luzor where virgin receiveth messageand halo projects from incisionwith usuraseeth no man Gonzaga his heirs and his concubinesno picture is made to endure nor to live withbut it is made to sell and sell uicklywith usura sin against natureis thy bread ever of stale ragsis thy bread dry as paperwith no mountain wheat no strong flourwith usura the line grows thickwith usura is no clear demarcationand no man can find site for his dwellingStonecutter is kept from his toneweaver is kept from his loomWITH USURAwool comes not to marketsheep bringeth no gain with usuraUsura is a murrain usurablunteth the needle in the maid s handand stoppeth the spinner s cunning Pietro Lombardocame not by usuraDuccio came not by usuranor Pier della Francesca Zuan Bellin not by usuranor was La Calunnia paintedCame not by usura Angelico came not Ambrogio PraedisCame no church of cut stone signed Adamo me fecitNot by usura St TrophimeNot by usura Saint HilaireUsura rusteth the chiselIt rusteth the craft and the craftsmanIt gnaweth the thread in the loomNone learneth to weave gold in her pattern Azure hath a canker by usura cramoisi is unbroideredEmerald findeth no MemlingUsura slayeth the child in the wombIt stayeth the young man s courtingIt hath brought palsey to bed lyethbetween the young bride and her bridegroom CONTRA NATURAMThey have brought whores for EleusisCorpses are set to banuetat behest of usura This is not a book to be read by a novice or someone unfamiliar to modernist literature as it is way complex than what you will get from TS Eliot I will say that if you like an adventure and like to be challenged intellectually as I do this book will give keep you busy and make you think whether you agree with Pound or not I find myself doing both at certain points
