The Fourth Imagist: Selected Poems of F. S. Flint
Edited by Michael J. Copp

About the Editor:
Michael Copp was educated at the Universities of London, Leicester, and Cambridge. During his period of National Army Service he served in Intelligence as a Russian translator. After early retirement from teaching modern languages in secondary education he became involved in adult education, working for many years as a tutor for the Board of Continuing Education of Cambridge University, where he taught courses on the literary and artistic response to war in the twentieth century. His most recent books are an An Imagist at War: The Complete War Poems of Richard Aldington (FDUP, 2002), and Richard Aldington: The Selected War Poems. He is currently engaged on editing the letters of Richard Aldington and F. S. Flint.

The book brings together for the first time poems from the three volumes of poetry that F. S. Flint published between 1909 and 1920. Copp’s selection includes eight poems from In the Net of the Stars (1909), twenty-two poems from Cadences (1915), and thirty-three poems from Otherworld (1920). This judicious selection is further enhanced by presenting another twenty-two poems, either previously uncollected or unpublished, three of which are in French.

This book succeeds in creating a larger place for Flint in our understanding of the development of early English Modernism. It alters the perception of him as a fringe or minor figure, and sets him closer to the heart of the Imagist achievement. Additionally, Copp argues that Flint has for too long been neglected and undervalued as a poet. As a consequence Copp’s timely book succeeds admirably in enhancing his status as a poet.
