Richard Aldington

Richard Aldington (8 July 1892 – 27 July 1962), born Edward Godfree Aldington, was an English writer and poet, and an early associate of the Imagist movement. He was married to the poet Hilda Doolittle (H.D.) from 1911 to 1938.

Aldington's 50-year career included work in poetry, novels, criticism and biography. He edited ''The Egoist'' literary journal and wrote for magazines such as ''The Times Literary Supplement'', ''Vogue'', ''The Criterion'' and ''Poetry''. His biography of ''Wellington'' (1946) was awarded the James Tait Black Memorial Prize. His circle included writers and critics such as T. S. Eliot, D. H. Lawrence, Ezra Pound, W. B. Yeats, Lawrence Durrell and C. P. Snow. He championed H.D. as the major poetic voice of the Imagist movement and helped to bring her work to international notice.
