The poems Pound's major poetic output is collected in two essential volumes: Collected Shorter Poems (1926) (Faber, 1984) and 7he Cantos (192569) (Faber, 1987). Both exist in several editions. I have referred to the latest paperback editions. In the case of the shorter poems, this is a reprint of the 1949 edition and differs in pagination from the 1968 hardback edition which is held by many libraries, though the content is very similar. In the case of 7he Cantos the latest edition contains the Italian poems and other additional fragments. Most critical works and commentaries still refer to the 197 5 edition which differs in pagination from Canto 72 onwards by a fairly consistent fourteen pages.
