Article

Perhaps best known as one of the founding imagists, H.D. was also a novelist, essayist and actor active throughout the entire modernist period. From her early, iconic lyrics to her late, mythological long poems, H.D. developed an aesthetic that bridged free verse, classicism, and new conceptions of identity, most notably gender and sexuality. In addition to her own work, H.D. helped shape modernism through her many friendships with other important artists and intellectuals, including Ezra Pound, Marianne Moore, D.H. Lawrence and Sigmund Freud.
