Publisher Marketing: Hilda Doolittle operates primarily as a mythopoetic writer, rewriting the eternal dramas of myth into self-knowledge. She showcases female characters acting as Promethean boundary makers, speaking a newlanguage into being. H.D.'s Dramatic Poetics illuminates how the creation of theatrical work functions as animportant imaginative gateway, or portal, in the discovery of new poetic forms. It seeks, moreover, toenlarge feminist critical discussions of how a feminist visionary like H.D. contributes to what femalenarratives sound like both in lyric and theatrical traditions.
