H.D. and Hellenism: Classic Lines concerns a prominent aspect of the writing of the modern American poet H.D. (Hilda Doolittle): a career-long engagement with hellenic literature, mythology, and art. Eileen Gregory's exhaustive treatment of H.D.'s poetic engagement with Greece is one of the few studies of a modern poet in relation to hellenism. She explores at length H.D.'s intertextual engagement with specific classic writers, and catalogues classical allusions in H.D.'s lyric poetry.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Highly recommended for undergraduates (including some lower-division students), graduate students, and scholars. A significant contribution to H.D. studies." S. Hoover, Choice

"H.D. and Hellenism is groundbreaking as a study of the transmission and influence of classical literature in American poetry. Gregory is...systematic and comprehensive in identifying H.D.'s Greek sources, literary and artistic. Classicists who are intersted in the transmission and influence of classical literature in American poetry could hardly ask for a more appealing poet than H.D., or a berrer introduction to her work than Gregory's." Robert G. Babcock, Yale University

"this is unquestionably a thorough and impressive examination of H.D.'s classicism" American Literature Sept 2001
