Summary
"Diana Collecott proposes that Sappho's presence in H.D.'s work is as significant as that of Homer in Pound's and of Dante in Eliot's. She undertakes a radical revision of H.D.'s Hellenism and her imagism, relating both to the literary and sexual politics of the First World War period. Connecting the fragmentary condition of Sappho's writings with the erasure of women within modernism and the silencing of lesbians in the wider culture, she traces the Sapphic in H.D.'s prose and poetry and in its modern contexts. Her exploration develops a lesbian poetics not only for H.D. but also for contemporaries such as Bryher, Amy Lowell and Virginia Woolf and for successors such as Audre Lorde, Adrienne Rich and Olga Broumas."--BOOK JACKET
