Canto I

Canto I


by Ezra Pound

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?


There's not even a mention of sex in "Canto I," which isn't true of all Pound's Cantos. Instead, Pound like to spend most of "Canto I" talking about mourning, loss, death, and all that less-than-sexy stuff.
