Imagist poetry criteria list
Imagist Poetry Criteria List

  • Get back into your earlier groups of 3.

  • Each member should get a sheet of composition paper.

  • Create a list of criteria for Imagist poetry.

    • They can be either do’s or don’ts

    • Try to find at least 8 items

      • 3 of those can be Mr. Flint’s rules.

  • We will finalize our list together


Imagist poetry criteria list1
Imagist Poetry Criteria List

  • Direct treatment of the “thing”

  • Use no word that does not contribute to presentation (all words reveal something)

  • Compose in sequence of the musical phrase, not a metronome

  • The rhythm should flow from one line to the next

  • Give feelings of liberation or sudden growth

  • Use concrete images, no abstractions

  • Avoid writing philosophic poetry

  • Present the image, don’t describe

  • Use surprising rhyme

  • Find the exact word that will achieve your goal


The river merchant s wife a letter
The River Merchant’s Wife: A Letter

  • With your group members, read “The River Merchant’s Wife: A Letter”

    • Does Ezra Pound actually create the kind of poetry he describes in “A Few Don’ts by an Imagiste?”

      • Write a thorough paragraph that answers the question.

      • Give at least 3 pieces of evidence from the poem (including explanation) to support your answer.

  • EQ: How do authors use pace and sequence to build a vivid, engaging, coherent story that works towards a particular tone and outcome?

  • Agenda

    • Agenda/EQ

    • Re-write/Graph of Holiday/Winter Story

    • Pacing Prompt


Graphing improving pacing
Graphing/Improving Pacing

  • Re-read your holiday story.

  • Graph your story’s pacing:

    • X = Time (perhaps you could think in terms of pages)

    • Y = Emotion or Excitement

    • Your graph should go up when your story pacing speeds up (more tension, more excitement, faster reading) and go down when your story pacing slows down (less tension, slower reading).

  • Once you have analyzed your story’s pacing, find 1 paragraph where your pacing should speed up and 1 paragraph where your pacing should slow down.

    • Re-write these paragraphs using the techniques in our reading.


Pacing prompt
Pacing Prompt

  • Have a character experienceor witness a crime.

    • Choose a small time crime (no violence); it could be as simple as someone accidentally short-changing a customer.

      • But perhaps a character sees this, overreacts, and vows to avenge the cheated customer by doing something drastic.

    • How will the character react? Does the character meet the criminal at all? Does she follow the criminal? Does the victim ever play a role? Ask lots of questions.

    • Write a 1 page, front & back story that includes the crime and the main characters reaction, you must have 1 section that is deliberately fast paced (the crime) and 1 section that is deliberately slowed down (the scene before or after the crime).
