29. de Chasca, Edmund S. John Gould Fletcher and Imagism. Colombia: U of Missouri P, 1978.
Offering examples from the work of Fletcher, Crapsey
(see CA4), Fenollosa (D10), Lowell, and Pound, de Chasca finds that Imagist poetics
shared several ‘obvious points in common’ with Japanese poetry,
and that in general ‘enthusiasm for Oriental poetry’ characterised
the ‘American Poetry Renaissance’ of the early years of the
century (see especially pp. 207-14). Based on ‘John Gould Fletcher
and Imagism’, PhD thesis, University of Chicago, 1974.
