with Robert Richardson.
Participating in The Imagist Walk, you will celebrate the centenary of a seminal moment in poetry. It was September 1912, in the British Museum Teashop, that Ezra Pound, in the presence of H.D. and Richard Aldington, first used the term 'Imagiste', and launched the Imagist movement. This was soon followed by poems and manifestos with 'Imagiste' (later 'Imagist') attached to them. In a guided tour of the British Museum area, the origins of Modern Poetry will come to life through its streets and buildings. The Walk is led by Robert Richardson, co-editor of 'Homage to Imagism' (AMS Press, New York).
The walk will last approximately one and a half hours.
2pm: Meet at the Poetry Café, 22 Betterton Street, London WC2H 9BX.
2.30pm: We start the Walk
4.00-4.30pm: Return to the Cafe for an hour's discussion/readings
