Ezra Pound and H.D.
An illuminating comparative study of Ezra Pound and Hilda Doolittletheir love, friendship, and artistic dialogue
Ezra Pound and Hilda Doolittle, who used the pseudonym H.D., are among the most important American modernist poets. In this comparative study, Jacob Korg examines their intertwined lives, from an early romantic relationship when both writers were in their early twenties, through the ongoing friendship and artistic dialogue that helped shape their work. Drawing on unpublished letters and manuscripts as well as published works, Korg offers a fresh view of two American artists and a wholly unexpected portrait of Poundexamined here, for the first time, through the context of a female modernist.
"A balanced and judicious account such as this, by a critic who is equally well-versed in the writings of H.D. and Pound, has great value within poetry studies and modernist studies in general."Wendy Stallard Flory, author of The American Ezra Pound
Jacob Korg is professor emeritus of English at the University of Washington. He is the author of five books, including Ritual and Experiment in Modern Poetry.
