BH. John Gould Fletcher


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.
