WCU professor’s book about ‘H.D.’ published

Written by 

The University of Iowa Press recently released "The American H.D.," a book by Annette Debo, a Western Carolina University associate professor of English.

"The American H.D." offers a story about the significance of the United States through a study of the life and work of modernist 20th-century writer Hilda Doolittle.

H.D., an American who spent her adult life abroad, helped launch the free verse movement and authored experimental novels, short and long stories, essays, reviews, a children's book and translations. The University of Iowa Press describes H.D. as "a white writer with ties to the Harlem Renaissance; an intellectual who collaborated on avant-garde films and film criticism; and an upper-middle-class woman who refused to follow gender conventions."

Debo, a resident of Asheville, joined the WCU faculty in 2001.
