Thomas Ernest Hulme was an English writer, who during his informal tenure from 1909 as critic for The New Age, edited by A. R. Orage, exerted a notable influence on London modernism.

He is known also as a poet, but wrote little: The Complete Poetical Works of T.E. Hulme was published in The New Age in 1912, at which point it consisted of five poems. He does have the claim to have been the original Imagist poet; and to have formulated with clarity the manifesto. This had a direct effect on Ezra Pound. He also influenced T. S. Eliot through his critical writings, in which he famously distinguished between Romanticism--a style informed by a belief in the infinite in man and nature, famously characterized by Hulme as "spilt religion"--and Classicism, a mode of art stressing human finitude, formal restraint, concrete imagery, and, in Hulme's words, "dry hardness".
