Hermetic Definition [PDF / EPUB] Hermetic Definition H D’s Hilda Doolittle 1884 1961 late poems of search and longing represent the mature achievement of a poet who has come increasingly to be recognized as one of the most important of her generation H D’s Hilda Doolittle late poems of search and longing represent the mature achievement of a poet who has come increasingly to be recognized as one of the most important of her generation The title poem and other long pieces in this collection Sagesse and Winter Love were written between and her death four years later and are heretofore unpublished except in fragments We can see now in proper context her fine ear for the free line and understand why other poets such as Denise Levertov Robert Creeley and Robert Duncan find so much to admire in H D’s work As in her earlier books one level of HD’s significant poetic statement derives from her intimate knowledge of and identification with classical Greek and arcane cultures; taken together these elements make up the poet’s own personal myth Norman Holmes Pearson H D’s friend and literary executor has contributed an illuminating foreword to this impressive collection.

    Det blir okänt antal stjärnor på denna jag vet inte hur man betygsätter lyrikDen första dikten är fantastisk och det finns en massa fina strofer men man ska nog vara inläst på mytologi och mysticism för att verkligen uppskatta HD
