Herself Defined: The Poet H.D. and Her World
by Barbara Guest
The definitive biography of Hilda Doolittle (aka H.D.), the Imagist poet whose work redefined the course of women’s writing throughout the twentieth century. A woman of great beauty, H.D. enthralled the literary worlds of London and Paris and counted among her intimates such figures as Ezra Pound–to whom she was briefly engaged–William Carlos Williams, Marianne Moore and D.H. Lawrence. Herself Defined not only helps to define this enigmatic force in modern literature and poetry, but also provides a fascinating glimpse into the heart and mind of an artist in her creative yet tormented search for self.
The subject of the biography, the poet H.D., was attracted to people of multiple genders.
