Mr Hulme paints nice pictures.
I take it that finesse, and fiddles, are coming soon. One of my favourite little poems. I wonder what picture you'll find to illustrate it, T.E. Hulme was a remarkable person, poetry was just a spare-time pursuit for him, but he left us this valuable legacy of words.
I'm definitely headed that way ... you first introduced me to Hulme. Then I overwhelmed you with his complete writings - not realizing that poetry was only a part-time pursuit for him. He really was more interested in philosophical and political debates. Still, he was an interesting man, and like most, he died too young. I read somewhere that Ezra Pound attempted to take credit for the new poetics that actually were pioneered by Hulme. I can see how he influenced Eliot ...xxx
