Ripostes was submitted to Swift and Co. in London in February 1912, and published by them in October that year. It was published in the United States in July 1913 by Small, Maynard and Co of Boston. It marks a distinct move by Pound toward the economy of language and clarity of imagery of the Imagism movement, and was the first time he used the word "Imagiste."
