AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This manifesto for free verse comes from a poet whose associates at the time included Harold Monro, Richard Aldington, and D.H. Lawrence in London, Harriet Monroe and Louis Untermeyer in New York, Natalie Clifford Barney in Paris. Anna Wickham (1883–1947) mixed with the modernist writers and artists of her time on both sides of the Atlantic and was widely admired for her early books, The Contemplative Quarry (1915), The Man with a Hammer (1916), and The Little Old House (1921).' (Introduction)


  • Epigraph:

    Rhymed verse is a wide net

    Through which many subtleties escape.

    Nor would I take it to capture a strong thing

    Such as a whale.
