Homework Help: AP Lit - Cantos I by Ezra Pound

Posted by Karen on Saturday, October 10, 2009 at 11:43pm.

Why did Ezra pound choose Canto 1 to be the first poem of his Cantos? And also, why did he end his poem with "so that?"

I don't really know the first one. It could be because it sets up the whole story line for the second two possibly. The second one, I was doing research on the author and poem and found this on Wikipedia.

“The canto concludes with some fragments from the Second Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite, in a Latin version by Georgius Dartona which Pound found in the Divus volume, followed by "So that:"—an invitation to read on.”
(I tried to cite it, but it says I can't post an internet address.)

Help me please? :)
