This article examines the history of innovations in modernist poetry. It suggests that the history of modernist poetry is one of radical innovation in form, prosody, and language, and that it is an ongoing tradition which is still vibrant in the twenty-first century, with successive generations of poets consciously writing within it. The article discusses the rise of imagism and describes the works of Mina Loy, Gertrude Stein, and Hope Mirrlees.
