A. Critical and Comparative Studies

52. Iwahara, Yasuo. ‘Imagist shijin to haiku no kankei’ (The relation between Imagist poets and haiku). Kôgakuin daigaku kenkyû ronsô 17 (1979): 1-32.

A careful tracing of the understanding of haiku by poets associated with Imagism, including Aldington, Fletcher, Flint (Ap), Hulme (see A3), Lowell, and Pound, between 1909 and the second Imagist anthology of 1915. Suggests that Pound first heard of the form, probably in November 1912, from Hulme or Flint, but that by 1915 Lowell and Fletcher had the greater knowledge of Japanese subjects.
