About the Author
H.D. (1886-1961) (the pen name of Hilda Doolittle) was born in the Moravian community of Bethlehem, PA in 1886.

She is perhaps one of the best-known and prolific women poets of the Modernist era. Bryher Ellerman was a novelist and H.D.'s wealthy companion. She financed H.D.'s therapy with Freud.Louis L. Martz's publications included "The Paradise Within: Studies in Vaughan, Traherne, and Milton," "Poet of Exile: a Study of Milton's Poetry" and "Many Gods and Many Voices: the Role of the Prophet in English and American Modernism." He edited "H.D. (Hilda Doolittle), 1886-1961. Collected Poems, 1912-1944."
