EventsEdit

  • March – Art student Vachel Lindsay goes into the streets of New York City and tries to sell or give away copies of one of his poems. The take: 13 cents. His reaction: Ecstasy. "Now let there be here recorded my conclusions from one evening, one hour of peddling poetry. I am so rejoiced over it and so uplifted I am going to do it many times. It sets the heart trembling with happiness. The people like poetry as well as the scholars, or better."[1]
  • December 15 – The Pushkin House is established in Saint Petersburg, Russia, to preserve the cultural heritage of Alexander Pushkin.
  • Ezra Pound presents Hilda Doolittle (the poet "H.D.") with a sheaf of love poems with the collective title Hilda's Book.
