CFP: Pound’s Presence in H.D. and Bryher’s Writing
The Ezra Pound Society and the H.D. Society invite abstracts for this non-guaranteed session at MLA 15. Pound’s direct impact upon H.D.’s writing is not limited to their early collaboration as Imagists; whether regarded as nurturing or negative, his presence reverberates. Consider how both H.D. and Bryher’s lives and work engage with Pound’s aesthetic, personal, and political activities throughout their careers.
Evidence of their interaction might be found in critical writing and correspondence; representations of Pound in fiction and memoirs; poetic practices. All aspects welcome: including engagement with visual culture, publishing, politics, the occult. Please submit brief bio statements, 250-word abstracts by March 14th, 2014 to Susan Mccabe (firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or Sara Dunton (email@example.com). Panelists must be current members of MLA.
