The Sword Went Out to Sea: (Synthesis of a Dream) (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


The modernist poet and novelist H.D. (Hilda Doolittle) was profoundly interested in the occult and during WWII conducted spiritualist seances in her home. Those experiences form much of the basis for her novel "The Sword Went Out to Sea", which features an experimental structure and a blending of autobiography, dream, and vision. Even though it was far too complex and eccentric for the popular presses of her day, H.D. believed "The Sword Went Out to Sea" was "the crown" of her years of serious study of esoteric doctrine as well as of her daily writing practice. It has never before been published.
