Literary London, World War I, changing attitudes towards women, love and sex—this is the world of Transgressions, a fascinating story of two young writers, the English poet Richard Aldington and the American poet Hilda Doolittle, whose passion is challenged by the forces of war and their own bohemian views of art and marriage. With their circle of friends, who included Ezra Pound and D.H. Lawrence, Richard and Hilda rebelled against convention both in their art and in their personal lives. Their fraught childhoods on different sides of the Atlantic prepared them for love, but neither was prepared for the turbulence that the war would bring. The lovers’ struggle to sustain each other and their writing in the face of forces beyond their control is at the centre of this vivid historical novel.
