Richard Aldington Richard Aldington is probably best known for being one of the first three Imagist poets, along with Ezra Pound and H.D. Around the Fall of 1912 in London, Pound proclaimed himself and his two good friends to be the three original Imagists, and was instrumental in getting the early poems of Aldington and H.D. published in Poetry Magazine (edited by Pound's friend Harriet Monroe in Chicago). H.D. (Hilda Doolittle) H.D., or Hilda Doolittle, was an American writer born in 1886. She wrote many poems and novels, knew fascinating people, and lived most of her long life in Europe, dying in 1961. Here you will find information on her writing, the H.D. International Society, and her many friends and associates.
