Another group explored how Harriet Monroe’s Poetry helped promote the movement known as “Imagism.” As they began research into the topic, this group discovered that Imagism was not a fixed, stable poetic category but something closer to a literary brand or label that had been used to different ends in a personal struggle between Ezra Pound and Amy Lowell. Their cleverly designed opening slide featured six other practitioners of this poetic movement all looking inwards toward these two central figures. Having followed the direction of the evidence, this group used their research into Poetry to replace the false stability of a literary “-ism” with a more historically accurate (and more dramatic) explanation of the personal alliances and animosities that were at work behind the making of modernist art.
