Imagist Poetry: An Anthology (Dover Thrift Editions) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Over 180 well-chosen Imagist gems appear in this tribute to the 20th century poetic movement that stressed precise language and individual rhythmic style. This definitive collection includes short verse published between 1913 and 1922 by Ezra Pound, D. H. Lawrence, H. D. (Hilda Doolittle), James Joyce, Wallace Stevens, William Carlos Williams, and many others.

Synopsis:

In the early twentieth century the Imagist movement ranked as one of the most radical poetic movements of the day. The imagists sought to blaze new literary trails and stretch the frontiers of poetic writing in English by following carefully prescribed principles: direct treatment of the subject, the use of few adjectives, choosing the exact word and developing individual rhythmic style in order to create works with "a hardness, as of cut stone." This volume contains over 180 well-chosen Imagist masterpieces by Ezra Pound. D. H. Lawrence, H. D. (Hilda Dolittle), James Joyce, Wallace Stevens, William Carlos Williams and other masters, as well as a roster of lesser-known poets: Richard Aldington, Walter Conrad Arensberg, Skipwith Cannell, Adelaide Crapsey, John Gould Fletcher, and many others. Ideal for use in high school and college literature courses, this collection will appeal to anyone interested in first-rate modern verse and one of the seminal poetic movements of the century.
