Canto VI was first written in 1919. This first version ruled for eleven years: it was published in The Dial (August 1921), Poems 1918-21 (Liveright, 1921) and A Draft of XVI Cantos (Three Mountains Press, 1925). Further, it was reproduced in Ron Bush, Genesis 310-314 and in Ezra Pound's Poetry and Prose. Contributions to Periodicals III: 175-78.

Pound radically revised this canto for its publication in A Draft of XXX Cantos (Hours Press, 1930). This second version has proved to be permanent and is included without change in all subsequent  volumes of collected Cantos.
