The Cantos by Ezra Pound is a long, incomplete poem in 116 sections, each of which is a canto.

As in Pound's prose writing, the themes of economics, governance and culture are integral to the work's content.

The most striking feature of the text, to a casual browser, is the inclusion of Chinese characters as well as quotations in European languages other than English.

Recourse to scholarly commentaries is almost inevitable for a close reader.

The range of allusion to historical events is very broad, and abrupt changes occur with little transition.

This was reissued in paperback in 1986 with the addition of the Italian Cantos 72-73.

In 2015 Carcanet Press published a volume of Posthumous Cantos, a selection of discarded and uncollected drafts, ca. The Cantos has always been a controversial work, initially so because of the experimental nature of the writing.

The controversy has intensified since 1940 when Pound's very public stance on the war in Europe and his support for Benito Mussolini's fascism became widely known.

There is also wide geographical reference; Pound added to his earlier interests in the classical Mediterranean culture and East Asia selective topics from medieval and early modern Italy and Provence, the beginnings of the United States, England of the 17th century, and details from Africa he had obtained from Leo Frobenius. Pound initially believed that he possessed poetic and rhetorical techniques which would themselves generate significance, but as time passed he became more concerned with the messages he wished to convey.

The section he wrote at the end of World War II, begun while he was interned in American-occupied Italy, has become known as The Pisan Cantos. There were many repercussions, since this in effect honoured a poet who was under indictment for treason.

The earliest part of The Cantos to be published in book form was released by Three Mountains Press in 1925 under the title A Draft of XVI Cantos.

The first nearly complete edition was New Directions' The Cantos (1-120) (1970).
