1914 / 1917
The four Imagist anthologies, published annually between 1914 and 1917, promoted Imagism as an avant-garde movement and helped turn Imagism into an important force in modern poetry. The first volume, Des Imagistes, was organized and edited by Ezra Pound; the MJP is making available three versions of this 1914 anthology—its initial appearance as a special issue of the literary magazine The Glebe, and the subsequent book editions published in New York and London. The 1915 Imagist anthology was organized and edited by H. D. and Richard Aldington, while its 1916 and 1917 successors were edited by Amy Lowell. The main contributors to the anthologies were Richard Aldington, John Gould Fletcher, F. S. Flint, H. D., D. H. Lawrence, Amy Lowell and Ezra Pound, with incidental poems by Skipwith Cannell, John Cornos, Ford Madox Hueffer, James Joyce, Allen Upward, and William Carlos Williams.
