I met featured poet Jane Augustine first as a prominent scholar of modernist poet H.D. (Hilda Doolittle). She has also written many articles on other modernist writers, and is the go-to expert on H.D.’s mysticism and Moravian heritage. Augustine’s six collections of poetry include A Woman’s Guide to Mountain Climbing (2008), High Desert (2019), and the monumental Traverse: Collected Poems 1969-2019 (Dos Madres Press, 2021). At over 700 pages, Traverse confirms that Augustine has been writing poetry — “something every day,” as her manifesto (included in this feature) states — all along.
