Thirty poetical pieces of Ezra Pound's stations of existence. The bulk of Pound's work on The Cantos began after his move to Italy. Like all other great epics, it is the story of good and evil, a descent into hell and the progression to paradise. Its hundreds of characters fall into three groups: those who enjoy hell and stay there; those who experience a metamorphosis and want to leave; and a few who lead the rest to paradiso terrestre.
