Editorial Reviews

Review

"The publication of H.D.'s late roman a clef is a timely one, as it engages many important critical questions: the place of the occult in modernism, women writers' response to war, the historical and biographical contexts of H.D.'s late writing. The editors give a forceful presentation of the novel's significance." - Eileen Gregory, University of Dallas "H.D.'s The Sword Went Out to Sea was written in response to two world wars and years of unremitting bombing. A haunting novel of spiritual duress and survival, it remains eerily relevant today." - Donna Hollenberg, University of Connecticut"

Book Description

"Readers of this book will want to take advantage of the editors' detailed summaries of the novel's characters--including 'keys' to surrogate/conflated characters (such as H.D.'s use of her sometime nom de plume, Delia Alton, as both author and protagonist of this novel) and H.D.'s use of dream and symbolism. Valuable for modernists; required reading for H.D. scholars."--Choice

 

"Engages many important critical questions: the place of the occult in modernism, women writers' response to war, the historical and biographical contexts of H.D.' s late writing. The editors give a forceful presentation of the novel’s significance."--Eileen Gregory, University of Dallas

 

"A haunting novel of spiritual duress and survival, it remains eerily relevant today."--Donna Hollenberg, University of Connecticut

 

Never before published, The Sword Went Out to Sea is the first book in H.D.'s prose trilogy that continues with White Rose and the Red and concludes with The Mystery. This complex, semi-autobiographical novel combines H.D.'s interest in the occult and experiences during the Blitz, and sheds light on the aesthetics and origins of literary modernism.
