Psychoanalytic Poems: Freud and H.D. -1-

Vienna,1933. The American poet Mrs. Hilda Doolittle meets Prof. Sigmund Freud, the psychoanalysis's founder. She is 47 and he is 77. This is the beginning of a therapeutic relation that will last till 1934. The Freud's office was at 19 Berggasse.

The Hilda's visions were daydreams in borderland,
She projected herself in her love's objects.
In her verses she put her sensitive soul,
Her love's objects didn't receive her soul.
One day the good Hilda came into Nineteen Berggasse;
There were books, carpets and dark.
Hilda got The Lesbos's sun to come in.
Sigmund had his family and his dog shut up in his castle;
Hilda took Sigmund out to her childhood's garden.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
