And round about were the wistful stars
With white faces like town children.

Notes on Life and Works

Essayist, translator of Henri Bergson, aesthetic philosopher, lecturer, and imagist poet whose entire published output was six poems at the time of his death, and whose essays were edited by Sir Herbert Edward Read posthumously in Speculations (1924) and Notes on Language and Style (1929). In 1906-07 he travelled in Canada and was deeply affected by the vastness of its prairies. He enlisted in the British army in the fall of 1914 and was killed in battle while serving in the Royal Marines Artillery. Alun R. Jones has done his biography in The Life and Opinions of T. E.

Hulme, edited by Karen Csengeri (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1994; B 1646 H82 Robarts Library).
