David Ayers’ Modernism: An introduction has an excellent short chapter on  ‘H.D., Ezra Pound, and Imagism‘. you can find a range of critical responses to H.D.’s ‘Sea Rose’ here, on the Modern American Poetry website, which also has some more material on Imagism, here.

The image here is from a painting by Georgia O’Keeffe, another female modernist artist who associates flowers with female sexuality.
