The Walls Do Not Fall (1944) is the first book in Hilda ‘H.D.’ Doolittle’s Trilogy, a personal poetic response to WWII. This 43-section poem by American poet, Doolittle, was dedicated to her lover, Bryher (Winifred Ellerman). For ‘H.D’ (1886-1961), it all started in 1911, at the Eiffel Tower restaurant in Soho, London. There, she met the Imagist poet Ezra Pound who, as a supporter and friend, conferred on her the term ‘H.D. Imagiste’, which later was shortened to her pen-name ‘H.D’. An important feminist poet, ‘H.D’ was the first woman to be granted the American Academy of Arts and Letters medal.
