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.
