Brief Definition

Imagism is a type of poetry that uses clear and direct statements in order to put an exact picture in the reader's head. Imagism started becoming popular in the early 1900's when a number of poets decided to stray away from the abstract wording most poetry at the time had. These poets saw significance in painting an obvious picture in the reader's mind in order to send their message through a poem.

A poem that is written using the imagism style should easily and quickly create visual images that tell the story. This style uses the most simple words and explanations in the poem. Whatever the poet is attempting to express must be very clear in Imagism poetry. The words used must be precise in the way that they portray an exact image.

Many imagist poets follow a set of rules when writing. The main subject of the poem must be clear and the poem directly deals with the main subject at hand. There are no words used in imagism that do not directly contribute to the story or message of the poem. Imagist poets write in a way that flows well but does not follow a regular rhythm. 

Imagism Poem Example

My Secret Love Affair

Even though our time is just
A moment here and there
To me you’ll never be 
The average everyday affair

I know I’m just a picture 
In the memory of your mind
The girl you keep a secret
The girl you leave behind

There was a time I’d lay awake 
And dream of you and I
There was a time I wanted more
There was a time I’d cry

For love is never easy
When it’s given just by one
Love is never easy 
When for him it’s just for fun

Love is never easy 
When you think that it’s for real
But when the spell is broken
It's not love, but lust you feel

Your dreams diminish one by one
Illusions fade away
And in their place reality
Has come to have its say

So now I know the secret 
To a passionate affair
To just enjoy the moment
To live without a care

To take each moment as it comes 
With eyes now open wide
But always with your secret love
You just enjoy the ride...
