Abstract

Imagist poets isolate a single image and reveal its essence. Pound defined an image as ‘that which presents an intellectual and emotional complex in an instant of time.’ The poet renders the image precisely, in clear, direct, exact language and in rhythms composed in individualised musical phases, not conventional metres and forms. Between 1914 and 1917, Imagist poets published four anthologies, and many of the contributors to those volumes appear in this 1930 anthology.
