H.D.'s Tribute to the Angels is a revelatory poem, suffering the impact of a world war through a contemporary presentation of the motifs, language, and defiant kind of faith once attributed to rapture. H.D.'s poems draw on scripture and imagery of strong-armed angels to build a familiar structure of belief in a new modernist voice, contextualizing that dark moment of our history by the very hope incidental to any prayer, as it is to poetry.
