Iconography, Hybrid Art and Self Portrait in H.D.'s Helen in Egypt
Summary:
H.D.'s Helen in Egypt is a hybrid work of art in the sense that it combines iconography and text as if it were the result of a blending of poetry and painting. As I will make evident, Helen in Egypt emerges as a series of "iconographies of text" that render the poem a specimen of hybrid art (Bredehoft cited in Gray 31). As I intend to show, H.D.'s long, visual poem is constituted via a series of "images of text" converting the "visuality" of the poem, an inherent trait of poetry, into a series of "pictures of words" which appear to be both outside the poem as its iconography in visual terms and yet inside it constituting its unity (Gray 31: Scobie 7, Bredehoft cited in Gray 31: Derrida 59). Furthermore, as I intend to demonstrate, the fragmented iconography of the poem culminates in H.D.'s self portrait. Apparently, in this paper, I treat H.D.'s poem as if it were a work of visual art.
