Richard Aldington and H.D.: Their Lives in Letters
Manchester University Press, Sep 6, 2003 - Biography & Autobiography - 440 pages
Richard Aldington and his wife and life-long friend, Hilda Doolittle, known to the world as the poet H.D., wrote to each other frequently about their work, their friends, their children, lovers and companions, and their tempestuous and complex love for one another. In this new revised and expanded edition of Aldington's and H.D.'s intimate correspondence between 1918 and 1961, Caroline Zilboorg explores their personal and professional lives, their friendships, and topics which concerned them both: cultural identity, sexuality, war, and the role of literature in the modern world. The letters collected here with extensive biographical commentary reveal one of the 20th century's most fascinating literary couples.
