"Signets" brings together the best essays of H.D. (Hilda Doolittle). Susan Stanford Friedman and Rachel Blau DuPlessis have gathered the most influential and generative studies of H. D.'s work and complemented them with photobiographical, chronological, and bibliographical portraits unique to this volume. The essays in "Signets" span H. D.'s career from the origins of Imagism to late modernism, from the early poems of "Sea Garden" to the novel "HER" and the epic poems "Trilogy" and "Helen in Egypt." In addition to the editors, the contributors are Diana Collecott, Robert Duncan, Albert Gelpi, Eileen Gregory, Susan Gubar, Barbara Guest, Elizabeth A. Hirsch, Deborah Kelly Kloepfer, Cassandar Laity, Adalaide Morris, Alicia Ostriker, Cyrena N. Pondrom, Perdita Schaffner, and Louis H. Silverstein. "Signets" is an essential resource for those interested in H. D., modernism, and feminist criticism and writing.
