Bid me to live, a madrigal by H. D( Book )

30 editions published between 1960 and 2011 in English and French and held by 1,186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... a thinly disguised roman à clef in which most of the leading members of London's Bloomsbury Group are easily identified: D.H. Lawrence, his wife Frieda, Ezra Pound, English poet Richard Adlington and, in the character of the heroine Julia Ashton, H.D. herself. The time is World War I, the setting is the London of the 1917 air raids, and the theme the disintegration of love, undermined by the distant but ubiquitous war. Julia lives for her husbands brief leaves from the front, only to discover that he has transferred his sexual interest to an earlier mistress, Bella. Into Julia's crumbling, trancelike world enters Frederick, the fiery writer whose scandalous novels on the problems of sexuality no one dares publish. Not until she finally escapes the fog and fever of London for the quiet of Cornwall can Julia discern of face the truth about Frederick, and about herself."--Back cover
Trilogy : the walls do not fall, Tribute to the angels, the flowering of the rod by H. D( Book )

35 editions published between 1973 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This reissue of the classic Trilogy, by H.D. (Hilda Doolittle, 1886-1961), now includes a new introduction and a large section of referential notes for readers and students, compiled by Professor Aliki Barnstone. As civilian war poetry (written under the shattering impact of World War II), Trilogy's three long poems rank with T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets and Ezra Pound's Pisan Cantos. The first book of the Trilogy, published in the midst of the "fifty thousand incidents" of the London blitz, maintains the hope that though "we have no map;/ possibly we will reach haven, /heaven." Tribute to the Angels describes new life springing from the ruins, and finally, in The Flowering of the Rod - with its epigram, " ... pause to give/ thanks that we rise again from death and live"--Faith in love and resurrection is realized in lyric and strongly Biblical imagery."--Jacket

Richard Aldington & H.D. : the early years in letters by Richard Aldington( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 1995 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both were pioneers in Modernist literature and participants in the Imagist movement of 1912. H.D.'s early verse established her reputation as a female writer at the forefront of experimental expression. Her work was revealing, often autobiographical and examined her artistic and sexual relationships with both men and women. Richard Aldington was a poet, novelist and translator as well as a biographer who alienated the British establishment with his acerbic Lawrence of Arabia. Drawing on Aldington's and H.D.'s intimate correspondence between 1929 and 1961, Zilboorg explores their personal and professional lives, their friendships, and topics which concerned them both: cultural identity, sexuality, and the role of literature in the modern world. The letters collected together reveal an intimate portrait of one of this century's most fascinating literary couples and it is impossible not to be caught up in the narrative of this complex and moving relationship

Analyzing Freud : letters of H.D., Bryher, and their circle by H. D( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The poet H.D. (1886-1961) underwent psychoanalysis with Sigmund Freud in Vienna during the spring of 1933 and again in the fall of 1934. She visited his famed study at 19 Berggasse daily, while outside Nazi thugs bullied their way through the streets - an early foretaste of the catastrophe of coming war. Freud was old, fragile, and often ill. H.D. was forty-six and despairing of her writing life, which, for all her success, seemed to her to have reached a dead end. Her sessions with Freud proved to be the point of transition, the funnel into which she poured her memories of the past and associations in the present, and from which she emerged reborn." "H. D. came to Freud at the urging of her companion, the novelist Bryher (1894-1983), the daughter of a wealthy British shipping magnate and long a supporter of the internationl psychoanalytical movement." "Although H.D.'s letters to Bryher are at the core of Analyzing Freud, the volume includes a generous selection of Bryher's side of the exchange, as well as sixteen letters by Freud to H.D. and a dozen more to Bryher, most of them published for the first time. In addition, reflecting a larger literary and personal web of associations, the book includes H.D.'s and Bryher's letters to and from Havelock Ellis, Kenneth MacPherson, Robert McAlmon, Ezra Pound, and Anna Freud, among others. Taken together, the 306 letters in Analyzing Freud, introduced and fully annotated by Susan Stanford Friedman, comprise a compelling portrait of a psychoanalysis that amplifies and expands upon H.D.'s formal Tribute to Freud (1974)."--Jacket
Notes on thought and vision & The wise Sappho by H. D( Book )

9 editions published between 1982 and 1988 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Notes on Thought and Vision by Imagist poet H.D. (Hilda Doolittle) is an aphoristic meditation on how one works toward an ideal body-mind synthesis; a contemplation of the sources of imagination and the creative process; and a study of gender differences H.D. believed to be inherent in women's and men's consciousness. Here, too, is The Wise Sappho, a lyrical tribute to the great poet of Lesbos, for whom H.D. felt deep personal kinship."--Jacket

The gift by H. D( Book )

13 editions published between 1982 and 1998 in English and French and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this complete, unabridged edition of H.D.'s visionary memoir, The Gift, Jane Augustine makes available for the first time the text as H.D. wrote it and intended it to be read, including H.D.'s coda to the book, her "Notes," never before published in its entirety. Written in London during the blitz of World War II, The Gift re-creates the peaceful childhood of Hilda Doolittle in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, where she was born in 1886. As an antidote to war's destructiveness, H.D. invokes the mystical Moravian heritage of her mother's family to convey an ideal world peace and salvation that would come through the spiritual power of women - a power that also endowed her with "the gift" of her own art. The Gift is key to intertextual studies of H.D.'s wartime oeuvre and to an understanding of the religious and gender concerns pervading her later work, especially the women-centered poems Trilogy and Helen in Egypt. Augustine's introduction and annotations, based on extensive research in Moravian archives, provide a biographical and historical context to make this the definitive edition of The Gift, essential to students and scholars of H.D., modernism, and feminist literature
