Hilda (H.D.) Doolittle (1886 - 1961)

  • About
  • Reviews
  • H.D. (Hilda Doolittle) is now acknowledged as a major Modernist, of the company of Eliot and Pound, Joyce and Lawrence. She was born in Pennsylvania in 1886 and moved to London in 1911, where she was one of the earliest Imagists. Her major works include Trilogy (1944-1946) and Helen in Egypt (1961). She died in 1961.
    Praise for Hilda (H.D.) Doolittle (1886 - 1961) '... a major figure in the Modernist movement, with an achieved body of work that can stand comparison with that of Eliot, Pound, Stevens and Williams. She has become, too, an exemplary figure for feminist criticism.' Gabriel Pearson, Times Literary Supplement
