Imagism

A movement among early 20th century poets who presented a concrete, tangible image that appeared frozen in time. The Imagist method is similar to photography. Imagist poetry explores the effect of the image on an observer at a precise moment.


  • Principles of Imagist Poetry:

  • The image is the essence, the raw material, of poetry.

  • Poetry should be expressed in brief, clear, concrete language

  • that forms precise images.

  • These images should instantly convey to the reader the poem’s

  • meaning and emotion.

  • The language of these poetic images should sound like simple

  • speech—not be made up of predictable rhythms and rhymes

  • but of freer, more modern verse forms.

  • Topics for poems need not be high-minded or “poetic.” No topic

  • is unsuitable for a poem.
