« Greg Hewett, Guest Blogger, June 20 - 26 | Main | A Possible H.D. Movie [by Greg Hewett] »

June 20, 2010


H.D. was one of my early loves too, I took Sea Garden with me wherever I went for maybe 2 years at least, and Helen in Egypt + Trilogy are two of my favorite books of all time. Her insatiable curiosity, elegance, and imaginative synthesis of the archaic/feminine mythic with psychoanalytic insight and political outcry, her reimagining of the "feminine epic," changed my poetics and my life, and really expanded the field of American poetry. Thanks Greg!! XO
