Abstract

T. S. Eliot believed that Pound was more responsible than any other individual ‘for the twentieth-century revolution in poetry.’ In Ripostes, Pound drew attention to the Imagist movement, developing that style in his own work and appending several poems by T. E. Hulme as examples of this new poetics. He included his translation of the Old English poem ‘The Seafarer,’ upsetting some readers by writing a poem based on his own personal interpretation of the medieval work rather than a literal translation of it.
