Abstract Bisexuality is investigated in the pair of poems H. D. wrote in the summer following her analysis with Freud. The idea that this analysis enabled her to integrate, value, and fashion a work of art out of her conflictual bisexuality is explored in detail in this paper. These poems explore the male in female and female in male that together delineate creativity. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2000 APA, all rights reserved)(journal abstract)
