Ripostes of Ezra Pound is a collection of 25 poems by the American poet Ezra Pound, submitted to Swift & Co. in London in February 1912, and published by them in October that year. It was published in the United States in July 1913 by Small, Maynard and Co of Boston.
Ripostes is the first collection in which Pound moves toward the economy of language and clarity of imagery of the Imagist movement, and was the first time he used the word "Imagiste." Of its 25 poems, "Salve Pontifex" had appeared in A Lume Spento, and eight others had appeared in magazines. The book includes Pound's interpretation of the Old English poem, "The Seafarer".
Five poems by T.E. Hulme -- ”Autumn”, “Mana Aboda”, “Conversion”, “Above the Dock” and “The Embankment” -- previouly published by Pound as the "Complete Poetical Works" in The New Age magazine in January, 1912 -- were included in Ripostes as an appendix, and event "frequently referred to as the formal initiation of the imagist movement into modern poetry."
