As Dante looks around, he notices that they are standing on a frozen lake in which sinners are. About the Title. Ezra Pound conceived of The Cantos as a modern epic poem and used as one inspiration the 14th-century Italian poet Dante Alighieri's (c. –) Divine Comedy (written c. –21), a poem divided into cantos, or sections, that trace the journey of Dante from darkness to light.

Bel Canto is a love story on every level. The plot revolves around a group of /5(). The demons in these cantos are described as no other beasts in the Inferno are described, with great detail and an almost comic-relief like quality. Dante the Pilgrim is simultaneously afraid of and fascinated by these beasts. Removing #book# from your Reading List will also remove any bookmarked pages associated with this title.
