THE ONLY PERIODICAL OF THIS IMPORTANT GROUP OF POETS THAT LASTED BRIEFLY FROM 1918-1924. With contributions by Osip MANDELSHTAM, Sergei ESENIN, A. MARIENGOF, V. SHERSHENEVICH, Vladimir SOKOLOV and others. Unlike the Futurists, the Imagists believed that "the image is an end in itself ... Art is form. Content is part of form." This was in stark contrast to the proletarian poets who believed content was everything.
