imagism
Imagism
  • Literary movement established in the early 1900s by Ezra Pound and other poets.
  • Concentrated on the direct presentation of images, or word pictures.
  • Poems expressed the essence of an object, person, or incident, without providing explanations.
  • Hoped to freeze a single moment in time and to capture the emotions of that moment.
imagism1
Imagism
  • Used the language of everyday speech, carefully choosing each word.
  • Shied away from traditional poetic patterns, focusing on creating new, musical rhythms.
  • Strongly influenced by traditional Chinese and Japanese poetry (haiku and tanka).
    • Evoke an emotional response through the presentation of a single image or a pair of contrasting images.

  • Concrete: existing in a material or physical form; real or solid
  • Verse: writing arranged with a metrical rhythm, typically having a rhyme
  • Prose: written or spoken language in its ordinary form, without metrical structure, "a short story in prose"

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

  • Give feelings of liberation or sudden growth
  • Use concrete images, no abstractions
  • Avoid writing philosophic poetry
