About this title


The definitive biography of Hilda Doolittle (aka H.D.), the Imagist poet whose work redefined the course of womens writing throughout the twentieth century. A woman of great beauty, H.D. enthralled the literary worlds of London and Paris and counted among her intimates such figures as Ezra Pound--to whom she was briefly engaged--William Carlos Williams, Marianne Moore and D.H. Lawrence. Herself Defined not only helps to define this enigmatic force in modern literature and poetry, but also provides a fascinating glimpse into the heart and mind of an artist in her creative yet tormented search for self.
