Hi, thanks for your question.
Ezra Pound was part of Des Imagistes, or Imagists, which included other poets such as William Carlos Williams, James Joyce, and Amy Lowell among the most well-known.
The Imagists were against the rules of poetry of the Georgian and Victorian periods, and insisted in a modern approach to the use of language and description.
A famous intent from Des Imagistes was its use of the phrase "to treat 'the thing' as 'a thing". In other words, forget the over representation and over-metaphoric traditions so typical of baroque poetry, forget excessive symbolism an go straight to the image you are describing, and describe its properties and elements for what they are. Present an CLEAR visual.
It would, in itself, create a sense of logic and imagery at the same time, which will ultimately lead to a much clearer and direct form of poetry. These are the same principles that rule Modern poetry and, ironically, is also a salute to the Classical forms of poetry.
