  Imagism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Imagism was a movement in early 20th century Anglo-American poetry that favoured precision of imagery, and clear, sharp language.
At the time Imagism emerged, Longfellow and Tennyson were considered the paragons for poetry, and the public valued the sometimes moralising tone of their writings.
In contrast to this, Imagism called for a return to what were seen as more Classical values, such as directness of presentation, and economy of language, as well as a willingness to experiment with non-traditional verse forms.

 Term-Papers.us - Imagism & Ezra Pound
Imagism and Ezra Pound Ezra Pound was one of the greatest poets of the modern era, creating a literary movement known as “imagism.” Pound coined the term in 1912 to assist Hilda Doolittle (H.D.) in the marketing of some of her poems.
Critics have observed that the real difference between imagism and vorticism was that “the latter movement distinguished Pound from the mediocre artists who had overtaken imagism.” Pound was determined to keep what he called “our little gang” an elite group (Dettmar/Watt).
I believe it was easier to find information on imagism on the Internet, rather than, say, biographical information, because the “Imagist theory” is based more on facts and it would be harder to inject opinions into the content.

The visual influence of Impressionism can be seen in poems from Lowell's "Imagist" period such as "The Taxi," "The Bath," and "An Aquarium." In her choice of subject matter, her use of color and her objective/subjective renderings of light and atmosphere, Lowell demonstrated an alignment with the painters of the Impressionist school.
Where Imagism concerns itself with the timeless, Impressionism is concerned with the passage of individual moments.
Still, if Lowell's reputation has dimmed since her death, the promise of Imagism has dimmed as well, having been absorbed into the greater catch-all of "Modernism," while Impressionism, on the other hand, has proved a viable movement which lives on in the visual arts and in music.

It gives an easy-to-grasp example of Imagism as a sort of Western "haiku," it's an easy way to anthologize Pound, most of whose work is incredibly long and arcane, and it does a lot with a little, as Imagism asks.
I like H.D. better for Imagism, although the Imagism generally doesn't do to much for me. Regardless, it was a "big" poetry movement, so anthologizers typically want to include an example.

As Lowell's reputation and success as champion of Imagism in the United States grew, publishing three volumes of Some Imagist Poets from 1915 to 1917, Ezra Pound grew more furious, believing he had been deposed as head of a movement he considered his rightful domain.
Still, Imagism under the promotion and practice of Lowell represents a major development in American poetry.
Eventually, though, Lowell came to believe less and less in the principles of any particular school of poetic expression and committed her energies to writing her two-volume biography of John Keats, which she dedicated to Ada Russell, and to developing "polyphonic prose," a style of lyric prose marked by crafted patterns of sound and imagery.

The objectives of Imagism were accurate description, objective presentation, concentration and economy, new rhythms, freedom of choice in subject matter, suggestion rather than explanation, and the absence of clichés.
In Ezra Pound's phrase, the natural object is always the adequate symbol.

The poetic movement Imagism developed in the early 20th century, championed by poets like Ezra Pound and H.D., who had been greatly affected by the new trend in European painting to capture the image or impression of a specific moment rather than construct a realistic and detailed record of a place.
One of the less widely known but highly influential proponents of Imagism in America was Amy Lowell.
According to several sources, she also was influential in popularizing “polyphonic prose”—prose which made conscious use of poetic sound devices like rhyme, alliteration and assonance.
