Diane di Prima: The Mysteries of Vision: Some Notes on H.D.
ed. Ana Božičević
Diane di Prima wrote The Mysteries of Vision: Some Notes on H.D. in response to a colleague's request that she speak on H.D. and Hermetic Definition to students, mostly poets, in the New College Poetics Program in San Francisco. She charts H.D.'s poetic/personal mythology, and the influence of the poet's visioning work on the tropes and structures of her poetry, in this precious and direct address of one great seer to another. The lecture is available here for the first time, fully annotated by Ana Božičević in collaboration with the author.
