From John Glendinning on May 8th, 2019
Ezra Pound's monumental poem The Cantos is the longest and most sustained literary effort made by a poet of the modernist generation in any language. It took half a century to write: begun before World War I, it was continued to the end of the 1960s. It has now become a modernist classic.
This event, sponsored by The Cantos Project at the University of Edinburgh and the Leverhulme Trust, and the third in an ongoing series, showcases the poems written between 1930 and 1934.
