A. Critical and Comparative Studies


54. Gage, John T. In The Arresting Eye: The Rhetoric of Imagism. Baton Rouge: Louisiana State UP, 1981.

Not a comparative study per se, but refers throughout to the influence of haiku, tanka, and the Fenollosa/Pound ideogram (see BK32) on Imagism (see index). The issues and examples discussed are not new, but along with their treatment in Hughes (A19), Harmer (A51), and Coffman (BK96) demonstrate that acknowledgement of an influence from Japanese materials has become part of mainstream critical writing about Imagism.
