Ezra Pound's Imagism Manifesto; Wordsworth's "Preface"

The excerpt from Ezra Pound's "Imagism" manifesto is here. It is part of a longer article on Imagism by Amy Lowell, an American poet who was for a time associated with the movement. There is also a nice page on the imagist H.D. (a Bethlehem native) here; and here is a thorough biography of her.

And Wordsworth's "Preface" to Lyrical Ballads, one of the key documents in the Romantic movement, can be read in its entirety here.

Though the Romantic movement and the Imagist movement are separated chronologically by at least a century, there is considerable overlap between them.
