Readings in the Cantos: Volume I

Walter Baumann

Liverpool University Press

Canto 7 ranges from the English Throne, via Homer’s Greece, Ovid’s Rome, Dante’s Inferno, and Troubadour France, mainly to Paris and London. There is a very negative assessment of modernity. With the exception of the chronicler and the muse Nicea, all men are just husks, just like their thoughts and their language. The one exception is the Irish statesman Desmond FitzGerald, but whose name is not in the text.

Keywords:   Bad taste in external and internal architecture, No thought but husks, Nostalgia for full-blooded life, Contrasting modernity with history
