Richard Aldington—whose work appears in the anthology, and along with H.D. was the first poet to be dubbed 'imagiste' by Ezra Pound—later wrote regarding the title of this anthology: "What Ezra thought that meant remains a mystery, unless the word "Anthologie" was assumed to precede it. Amy's anthologies were called Some Imagist Poets, so she may have supposed that Ezra thought "Des Imagistes" meant "Quelques Imagistes." But why a French title for a collection of poems by a bunch of young American and English authors? Search me. Ezra liked foreign titles."
