H.D. (Hilda Doolittle) is a unique poet whose life, for the better part of seventy-five years, was multifariously associated with a group of artistic and intellectual luminaries of the early 20th century: Ezra Pound, Richard Aldington, D.H. Lawrence, Cecil Gray, Sigmund Freud, and many others. As protegee, lover, muse, wife, analysand, and disciple of these strong male personalities, her life as a writer was a continuous struggle to find within this male context her own female muse who would lead to her own voice and vision. H. D.`s Trilogy―The Walls Do Not Fall (1942), Tribute to the Angels (1944) and The Flowering of the Rod (1944)―written during the war years of the London Blitz, describes a spiritual quest for rebirth amidst the destruction of war. Writing this epic was also the shifting stage upon which she tried to shed the once-useful but finally limiting description of "imagist" given her by Pound as her poet designator. In Trilogy, the female poet-speaker searches for the presence of her muse in Isis, the Virgin Mary, and Mary Magdalene. Through the linguistic alchemy of her poetry, she revises these traditional figures into transformed ones manifesting female openness and flexibility. Her quest for the female muse, in the end, is a metaphor and a literal source of female creativity.
