Summary
H.D. and Hellenism: Classic Lines concerns a prominent aspect of the writing of the modern American poet H.D. (Hilda Doolittle): a lifelong engagement with hellenic literature, mythology, and art. H.D.'s hellenic intertextuality is examined in the context of classical fictions operative at the turn of the century: the war of words among literary critics establishing a new "classicism" in reaction to romanticism; the fictions of classical transmission and the problem of women within the classical line; nineteenth-century romantic hellenism, represented in the writing of Walter Pater; and the renewed interest in ancient religion brought about by anthropological studies, represented in the writing of Jane Ellen Harrison
