BB. Richard Aldington

12. Life for Life’s Sake: A Book of Reminiscences. New York: Viking, 1941. Reprint, London: Cassell, 1968.

Aldington’s autobiography. Pertinent here primarily because it does not mention hokku, haiku, haikai, tanka, or ukiyoe in the long, good-humoured discussion of the birth of Imagism. Aldington distances himself from the movement and questions earlier accounts of the first Imagist gatherings.
