Using a Visual Understanding Environment to Understand H.D.’s Networks of Influence

H.D.’s archival records include correspondence from 213 individual correspondents, ranging from family and childhood friends to the central writers and editors of literary modernism.

See Bryher's influence throughout H.D.'s Network of Correspondents in this Node Map of the people in H.D.'s archives of correspondence.

By mapping the inter-relationships among these correspondents, we can retrace the shape of Modernist networks that are often female-centered, America-centered, and familial.

 

Correspondents are sorted in nodes based upon the people who introduced H.D. to members of the wider network. Major nodes are anchored by Frances Gregg Wilkinson, Ezra Pound, Richard Aldington, Bryher, Edith Sitwell, Sylvia Dobson, and Norman Holmes Pearson.
