When the family moved, and life became centered on the University of Pennsylvania rather than the Moravian church, Mrs. Doolittle had to Polson 9 explain Moravianism to the university ladies Robinson Despite the religious persecution experienced by the Moravian Brethren historically, Smaby says there remain many written works spanning all but the first few decades of the Moravian Church.
A part of that persecution meant Moravian ministers were exiled and their books burned. The few who managed to preserve the old faith were the people of the Hidden Seed. They practiced Catholicism publicly but secretly gathered to study their forbidden bible, sing their old hymns, and read from carefully hidden unauthorized books In Trilogy, H. The image of past persecution—the burnt unauthorized books—shifts to a contemporary situation where a portion of humanity, still ignorant of the value of the written word, clamors for yet more destruction.

Polson 10 when the incendiary bombs rained down. The British Museum, the site of H. In Trilogy H. The shattered buildings H. Each of these events combined an invasive opening, but provided opportunities for the renewal of civilization, the acquisition of long hidden knowledge, and the healing of a troubled psyche.
It is an indication that the poems are a palimpsest in which antiquity, world history, and personal history continually shift. Mystery, magic—that I have found in London! Polson 11 Survival and shifts in religious traditions are themes that provide continuity throughout Trilogy. In light of the deteriorating political situation, H.
London, and Polson 12 H. Norman Holmes Pearson confirms how important her religious heritage, with its history of religious dissidence, was to H. She returned to Bethlehem with Pearson in September—shortly after the publication of Tribute to Freud. In an October 6, letter, H. Book where he likens Trilogy to a landscape with multiple images of historical, personal, divine, and poetic imagination blended with one another. Duncan also believes: H.
Polson 13 Religious persecution, necessitating subterfuge for survival, was a part of both H. Her wartime experiences, especially in Vienna and London, further magnified the consequences of religious persecution for H. Autobiography Trilogy is a spiritual autobiography which parallels the regeneration of H.
Her coded discourse in this long poem, though not necessarily autobiographical in form, layers images of survival from H. In the modernist long poem, the life of the poet is often used, in the absence of a unified and linear narrative, as a structuring principle. James Goodwin begins his overview of the autobiography in Autobiography: The Self Made Text, by saying that autobiographies are usually prose narratives, although occasionally long poems also belong to the genre While authors of memoir document the social history in which they have played some part, Goodwin says that in memoir personal 8Hollenberg says H.
Nalbantian says formal autobiography developed from religious into secular and poetic narratives 1.
Restoring Oneness: The Butterfly Trilogy
In this form of autobiography, traumatic experiences generate psychic facts, and ideas about identity formation reflect the developing psychological theories of the times, most notably those of Freud These autobiographies, with their psychic concentration on significant moments, replaced linear and chronological narratives These innovators of early twentieth- century modernism focused on their interiority rather than an outer world focus, as had been the case previously Also, the chronological progression of narrative in conventional book-length autobiographies gives way to works where chronological time is transformed Nalbantian concludes: Ever close to the life material, they construed literary methods to distance themselves from it.
This genre of fictional autobiography was creating techniques of artistry used for the simultaneous revealing and concealing of the self. And Polson 15 within this mode there lies the heart of the creative process whereby the truths of fact were becoming truths of fiction. As Pearson recalled, H. Zinzendorf supported the Moravians in their efforts to maintain the Christ-centred theology of the Unitus Fratrum when he realized that the traditions of the Unitus Fratrum had been remarkably well preserved among these immigrants.
Moravians believed Christ offered them a path out of their state of natural degradation, for which they owed their unending gratitude Death, which had formerly been described as the journey home, was now the journey into the sweet Sidewound Moravians charted their own process of conversion through written memoirs such as those studied by Katherine M.
Invariably, it was the founding fathers and leaders of these types of communities who published memoirs. All Moravians shared their personal memoirs with others of the faith as a part of their regular devotions. The Moravian memoir genre has received little scholarly attention as an example of spiritual autobiography, even though these personal and frank autobiographies are responses to both faith and life events xxxi-xxxii. Faull notes that, compared to the Quaker journals and Puritan narratives, from which it is difficult to glean personal emotions and experiences, the Moravian memoirs interweave secular experience, personal detail and spiritual narrative xxxi.
She writes, This self-scrutiny reflects a radical shift of perspective in the spiritual autobiography in the late seventeenth-and early eighteenth-century in Europe where the object of interpretation in the early modern period changes from the traditional one, the Scriptures, to become the scrutiny and interpretation of the self. The known world is bursting its scriptural containment.
The overarching biblical narrative is being eclipsed in favor of new competing narratives. Moravian memoirs exhibit both a Polson 18 personal contemplation of a relationship with God and detailed descriptions of worldly experiences. In keeping with a movement towards self-scrutiny, the narrative voice in the Moravian memoirs shifts from a third- to a first-person narration xxxviii. The original memoirs, either dictated or written by individuals, are recorded in the Bethlehem Diary xxxvii. Often, they include dreams and visions as indications of either a troubled soul or immanent grace xxxvi.
In contrast with the Moravian memoirs, Puritan spiritual autobiographies followed strict conventions that conformed to an already established pattern.
Books by Petrus (Author of Restoring Oneness)
Puritans read the treatises on spiritual journeys offered by the male clergy in order to gauge the state of their own souls as they strove for salvation. This secularized private self later served the needs of a newly emergent middle class. Schweitzer says that between and New England Puritan clergy required all candidates for church membership to produce an account of their conversion experiences.
Schweitzer says seventeenth-century Puritan child rearing practices encouraged breaking the will of children and demanding strict obedience to parental authority as preparation for the conversion experience when self-will and self-reliance must be resigned. Seeking deliverance, H. D embarked on a journey of psychoanalysis with Freud. As she begins her journey into the unmapped regions of her unconscious, H. Polson 21 the industrious worm, spin my own shroud.
These last two lines are especially symbolically important. There is a unity between the silkworm, an insect capable of metamorphosis, and the phoenix, a mythical bird, symbolic of—especially in alchemical allegory—with regeneration, and also the myrrh plant which is often associated with resurrection. Janice Robinson simply explains H. When the process of metamorphosis begins, the moth, ready to emerge, breaks out of the cocoon in which it underwent its transformation The Cleveland Museum of Natural History.
Polson 22 symbol. She, too, interprets the worm cycle as a female reproductive cycle 11 , and also notes H. Gubar, however, goes on to include Denise Levertov in her feminist interpretation of H. It seems plausible that H. Equally plausible is the possibility that birds are an extended metaphor for the male in these poems. At times birds men prey on worms women , but the mythical phoenix, which in its cyclical life cycle grows from a worm into a bird, is a symbol of regeneration In the context of the symbolic importance of the silkworm, phoenix, and myrrh noted above, in Trilogy, the phoenix metaphorically represents Freud and his role in H.
Nonetheless, given H. The Phoenix has its home in Paradise, and after years, it becomes oppressed with the burden of its age. Before it can die and be reborn, it flies down to the mortal world where it builds a nest of frankincense, myrrh, and other spices, and there it dies.
As her forebears did in the Moravian memoirs, H. Here H. For H. Here, again, are cyclical time and a palimpsest of past and future. Dream visions are an important part of three poems in these first two volumes. This dream vision of the Lady continues throughout the second volume of poems as the dreamer, by process of elimination, tries to identify her.
Following the example of the Moravian memoirs, it seems clear that H. Trilogy chronicles H. The new vocabulary of faith H. Duncan says in psychoanalysis H. It seemed to Freud that his contemporaries were unwilling to understand or recognize his discovery of the unconscious He asked that H. This would seem a logical conclusion to reach after the Nazis burned his books. Like the ancestors who had disguised their religion in the face of prejudice Polson 25 and persecution, H.
In the hermetic symbolism of alchemical allegories, H. As noted in section one, Duncan explained that H. Understanding H. Since this 14 In an undated letter H. To summarize, H. But it was an English girl who made me still madder […] questioning the status of the poet, the writer in the future world-reconstruction. Surette gives credit for the scholarly study of the occult to G.
In the Hermes writings, alchemy is one of the arts through which humanity can find personal salvation. The Corpus Hermeticum impressed Italian intellectuals when it arrived in the western world. The occult appealed partly because it bridged the gap between religion and science. As is plainly evident in Trilogy, religious cults from antiquity, dissident religions, and the new doctrine of psychoanalysis are all part of a central theme of spirituality throughout the poems. By the end of the third volume of this book, Mead has argued that the evidence found in the remains of the Trismegistic literature indicate that the truth of the matter is the reverse of this theory of plagiarism.
Given H. After the First World War, H. Woodman says H.
In articulating a belief in the underlying unity of all Polson 30 religious traditions, H. Religion and Alchemy H. She favours the metaphor of the palimpsest to convey the layered quality. As Janice Robinson says, the poetry suggests the occult quality of antiquities: Each of H. Despite some passing references to the occult in scholarly work on H. This oversight by scholars may be motivated by a concern that her work will become tainted with the charlatanism and nonsense of alchemy, and thus not be given the serious attention it merits.
Laurinda S. Dixon and Petra ten-Doesschate Chu say with the invention of printing in the fifteenth century, copiously illustrated allegorical and practical alchemical tenets were published in books now available to both the intellectual elite and the educated middle class A twentieth-century example of alchemical studies can be found in C. It is important to note that Jung links alchemy with psychoanalysis, and H.
Friedman says H. This statement could also describe the plight of the dissident religions with which H. Thus, H. In addition to direct references to alchemy, H. D expressed ideas about the occult and through language drawn from alchemical allegory.
