Meet the Author

H.D. (1886-1961) (the pen name of Hilda Doolittle) was born in the Moravian community of Bethlehem, PA in 1886. A major twentieth century poet with “an ear more subtle than Pound’s, Moore’s, or Yeats’s” as Marie Ponsot writes, she was the author of several volumes of poetry, fiction, essays, and memoirs. She is perhaps one of the best-known and prolific women poets of the Modernist era. Bryher Ellerman was a novelist and H.D.’s wealthy companion. She financed H.D.’s therapy with Freud.

The American poet Nathaniel Tarn was born in
Paris in 1928 and emigrated to the US in 1970, where he has lived ever since,
mostly in the New Mexican desert. A leading anthropologist for many years and a pioneering translator of Pablo Neruda and Victor Segalen, Tarn, “one of the most outstanding poets of his generation” (Kenneth Rexroth), has published more than thirty books of poetry, essays, and translations—including most recently, The Beautiful Contradictions and Ins and Outs of the Forest Rivers, both available from New Directions.

Forrest Gander grew up in Virginia and has degrees in geology and English literature. His recent books include the novel As a Friend andthe translation Firefly Under the Tongue: Selected Poems of Coral Bracho (PEN
Translation Prize Finalist), both from New Directions. A United States
Artists Rockefeller Fellow, Gander is recipient of fellowships from the NEA,
the Guggenheim, Howard, and Whiting foundations. He is the Adele Kellenberg
Seaver Professor of Literary Arts and Comparative Literature at Brown
University.

Alejandra Pizarnik (1936–1972) was a key figure in twentieth-century Argentine poetry.
