The MLA announces the publication of it's new title in their Approaches to Teaching World Literature series--
Approaches to Teaching H.D.'s Poetry and Prose Edited by Annette Debo and Lara Vetter
"An impressive volume . . . I am struck by the richness and variety of approaches to teaching H.D." --Cynthia Hogue, Arizona State University
The poet Hilda Doolittle (H.D.) came on the literary scene in the 1910s as a young American expatriate living in England. Her early lyric poems, in Sea Garden, helped launch the free verse movement known as imagism.
Since the 1970s, H.D.'s poetry and prose have appeared regularly on undergraduate and graduate syllabi, in courses ranging from American or British modernism and gender and sexuality studies to literature of war and classical literature and mythology. Yet her work--complex and densely allusive--can be difficult for students to comprehend and for instructors to teach. This volume aims to assist instructors in helping their students navigate the intricacies of H.D.'s work and overcome some of the frustration of deciphering modern poetry.
