BA. Conrad Aiken: Primary Materials

1. Episode in Grey. In Nocturne of Remembered Spring and Other Poems. 1917. Rev. ed., Boston: Four Seas, 1925.

Miner (A25) notes the ‘Impressionistic’ technique and ‘pictorial’ structure of this poem, The Charnel Rose (3a), and Seven Twilights (10a), and suggests that these may owe something to Aiken’s interest in and understanding of ukiyoe. The title was changed to Episode in the 1925 edition, but restored in Collected Poems (17).
