    Download ↠ Asphodel AsphodelWritten in 1921 22 and not published until after HD's death this is a shockingly experimental work for its time and an important text to be added to our understanding of Modernism We move between POV in mid sentence fracture and condense thought and experience and explore issues of female subjectivity and homosocialhomosexual desire It is a difficult work as speech is often not indicated nor are speakers and we move within streams of consciousness without warning But as readers of the PostModern we should be fine with such things right Its structure is complex and one co

    Download ↠ Asphodel AsphodelReading this book felt like walking through a dream The style is stream of consciousness which honestly usually annoys me to no end Here though it's compelling and beautiful and readable and it drew me in Flowers and Greek mythology abound in this book And the colors so many colorsThis is an autobiographical story by HD of her time living in Europe before during and after WWI She was contemporaries with artists and writers of the time and some of them feature in her story I was very conscious of reading a true story because despite the dream like feeling of the writing it feels very real The substance of the story may fade with time but feeling of it will stick with me Food a meal of edible flowers Vibrant perfumed sometimes bitter like nothing you've ever eaten and not soon to be forgotten

    Download ↠ Asphodel AsphodelThis story is as raw as they come It is very much a coming of age tale told from an early expatriate and her journey navigating womanhood in the 1910s early 20s She uses beautifully poetic language to make parallels to the trauma she is personally facing and the devastation of World War 1 but it isn’t a book I would be begging to pick up again or recommend based on its rawness It is an unedited text and was meant to be destroyed by Hilda but o
