A long, incomplete poem in 116 sections. Mainly written between 1915 and 1962, much of Pound's work was abandoned and the early cantos, as finally published, date from 1922 onwards. The Cantos include Chinese characters, quotations in European languages, and numerous geographical references. Generally considered one of the most significant works of modernist poetry in the 20th century.
