F. S. Flint
There is a natural physiological tendency to pronounce in one breath successive groups of rhythmic feet, and the rhythmic content in the average length of breathing can only be called a verse.
Flint quotes
Like most inventors, Pound did not create out of the void. The "Image" he took from T.E. Hulme's table talk. The "ism" was suggested to him by the notes on contemporary French poetry which I wrote for Harold Monro's Poetry Review. The collacation of 'image' and 'ism' came to Pound after I had told him about Divoire's essays on stratégie littéraire.
I have followed my ear and my heart, which may be false. I hope not.

Flint F. S. quotes
The poem, a harmonious flow of nuances, demands a musical rhythm, Vers libre.
