In March of 1909, a group of dissident young English writers led by T.E. Hulme met at the Eiffel Tower restaurant in London's Soho district to discuss the state of poetry. The following month they were joined by the American poet Ezra Pound, who in 1912 coined the name "Les Imagistes" and eventually made Imagism the watchword for the new movement. 80 years on, a series of events in London commemorated that distant birth with an Imagist Walk, a Big Little Poem Reading, an Imagist Symposium and a reading by the Japanese poet Kazuko Shiraishi. This collection is the fruit of that celebration and reflects not only the undiminished impact of Imagism but the contemporary concerns of the participants, who included Donald Davie, Diane Collecott, Allan Rodway, Neil Roberts and the co-editors.
