BB. Richard Aldington: Primary Materials

1. Penultimate Poetry. Egoist 1 (January 1914): 36.

  Reprinted in An Anthology of Uncollected Poems.  

A parody of Pound and the preoccupations of the Imagists, including their Oriental interests. The last of nine sections finds its humour at the expense of the hokku-derived In a Station of the Metro (BK3) and the form of super-position (see BK12): ‘The apparition of these poems in a crowd: / White faces in a black dead faint.’ Reprinted in 16.
