F. S. Flint

Frank Stuart Flint (December 19, 1885 - February 28, 1960) was an English poet and translator who was a prominent member of the Imagist group.He is mostly known for his participation in the "School of Images" with Ezra Pound and T. E. Hulme in 1909, which was to serve as the theoretical basis for the later imagist movement (1913). He also published on French poets starting in 1908, and published a series of articles on contemporary French poets (1912) that much influenced his contemporaries. He entered into a short-lived dispute with Pound as to each one's relative contribution to the imagist movement.

During the 1930s Flint was among a number of poets who moved away from poetry and towards economics, writing that " [t] he proper study of mankind is, for the time being, economics" [C K Stead, 'Pound, Yeats, Eliot and the Modernist Movement', p.212] . Flint would go on to publish an article entitled 'The Plain Man and Economics' in The Criterion in 1937.
