Persons, Anne L. (Annie Laurie)
MetadataShow full item record
My thesis examines how, throughout her career, H.D. seeks to express creativity in reality through occult writing. I trace this goal in H.D.’s major war-inspired works, Sea Garden (1916), The Gift (1944), and Trilogy (1944). Each text marks the progression of her dually feminist and religious quest, from search for to discovery and then creation of a sacred text. This quest brings creativity into reality, a unity that heals and, in the process, empowers women and H.D. [From Introduction]
