Between history & poetry : the letters of H.D. & Norman Holmes Pearson by H. D( )

18 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2,351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1937 William Rose Benet sent a young Yale graduate student, Norman Holmes Pearson, to interview the sophisticated expatriate poet Hilda Doolittle during one of the few trips she made to America after going abroad in 1911. Until her death in 1961, they engaged in a prolonged and wide-ranging relationship vital to H.D.'s development as a writer. Perhaps because she was absent from the American scene, H.D. was eager for more contact with American writing, and Pearson became her literary adviser, agent, executor, confidant, close friend, and self-styled "chevalier." This annotated selection of their more than one thousand letters documents the dynamic between H.D. and Pearson, who became an influential literary critic, and anchors it in the broader literary world."--BOOK JACKET. "In her letters H.D. confided details about her works in progress, commented on her reading, and gossiped about members of her widespread literary circle. Pearson's responses sparked the conception of specific works and contributed to the form of others; he influenced the cycle of romances that reflected H.D.'s war experience and its parallels in history and, most significantly, was the catalyst for her return to poetry. His long-standing commitment to her work as reflected in these learned, witty, sometimes poignant letters ensured that H.D. would take her place as one of the major poets of this century."--Jacket

End to torment : a memoir of Ezra Pound by H. D( Book )

24 editions published between 1979 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,093 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

End to Torment: A Memoir of Ezra Pound is the deeply personal journal kept by the poet H. D. (Hilda Doolittle. 1886-1961) in 1958, the year Ezra Pound was released from St. Elizabeth's in Washington, D.C., and returned to Italy. H. D., hospitalized in Switzerland from a fall, was urged to put down on paper, once and for all, her memories of Pound, which reached back to 1905, when she was a freshman at Bryn Mawr and he a graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania. They had been engaged for a period, and what began as a brief romance developed into a lifetime's friendship and collaboration in poetry. Throughout the reminiscence runs H. D's conviction that her life and Pound's had been irrevocably entwined since those early days when they had walked together in the Pennsylvania woods and he wrote for her verse after William Morris, Rossetti, Swinburne, and Chaucer. Twenty-five of these poems, handbound in vellum by Pound and called "Hilda's Book," are published here for the first time as an epilogue to this important and moving document. Publisher's note

Depiction of a utopian community that cannot survive the passions of its members; The Marble Faun, Hawthorne's last novel, inspired by his yearlong stay in Italy; and tales from The Snow-Image, his final collection of short stories. Hawthorne's themes of alienation, guilt, and isolation ensure that he remains pertinent, and his writing is infused with a distinct sense of place. As Henry James wrote, "He offers the most vivid reflection of New England life that has found its way into our literature." All of his virtues are abundantly demonstrated in this most substantial representation of his work
