The program traces the unique life and work of 20Th century poet H.D. (Hilda Doolittle, 1886 - 1961). Throughout her tumultuous life, H.D.met experiences that led her to an awareness of a spiritual presence that is never absent. These experiences, culminating during WW II, found expression in the poetry cycle “Trilogy” which has been called one of the most beautiful and profound mystical works in the English language. Hilda’s scholarly and artistic work has deep roots in the Egyptian and Greek Mysteries, in particular Ephesus. In 1960 she received the American Academy of Arts and Letter award of Merit medal. The program features excerpts from her life and poetry interspersed with works by Arvo Pårt, Mozart and Rudolf Steiner.
