Cinematic Fictions

This chapter focuses on poet and novelist H.D. (Hilda Doolittle), who was actively involved in film-making for a time, and who, throughout her career, remained obsessively preoccupied with the visual but constantly pushed against the limits of visibility. ‘Vision’ was a term that oscillated in Doolittle's works between the physical and the transcendental, and for her, film was a crucial medium for exploring this border area.

Keywords:   Hilda Doolittle, poets, women novelists, films, vision
