The Cantos of Ezra Pound is the most important epic poem of the twentieth century.Delmore 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 of it?in the words; fuses it with the words, present and past, to MAKE his Cantos. Make them."
