H.D., Trilogie, "série américaine", éditions Corti, 2011

D. (Hilda Doolittle, 1886-1961), poète américaine, est une pointe du triangle dont les deux autres seraient Ezra Pound et William Carlos Williams. C’est au bas d’un de ses poèmes, “Hermes of the Ways” qu’en septembre 1912 Ezra Pound inscrivit “H.D. Imagist”; première mention de l’imagisme et de ces initiales qui désormais remplaceront son nom. Malheureusement trop longtemps considérée comme une émule fidèle de l’imagisme et membre de l’écurie d’Ezra Pound, ce n’est que depuis peu (en partie du fait de l’essor du féminisme) que sa poésie, et surtout ces derniers livres, War Trilogy (1973), Helen in Egypt (1961) et Hermetic Definition (1972) sont apparus comme l’oeuvre d’une poète majeure en quête d’un “gnosticisme” moderne et explorant la psyché, l’histoire, les mythes et les traditions de l’humanité.

Political Parties

The Democratic and Republican parties are the two major political parties in the United States. Here are some of the basic differences between the two, although you should always remember that people who describe themselves as either Republican or Democrat don't necessarily have all the same beliefs. They may subscribe to only some of their party’s core beliefs, and can even agree with many of the things that characterize the opposing party! For the last 100 years, the Democrats have tended to be the more left-leaning or liberal party in U.S. government. That means that Democrats tend to support the ideas of equal rights and opportunities for the working and lower classes, as well as the right to civil liberties that protect individuals from the government's interference.

The Republican Party, often called the GOP, is considered the more right-leaning or conservative party in U.S. government.

UsefulNotes/Political Ideologies.

These are the basic political ideologies that are prevalent in contemporary times.

UsefulNotes/Political Ideologies

Of course, these are largely simplified, and most people don’t adhere purely to one ideology, but adopt concepts from multiple ideologies. Still, most political works can be broadly defined as falling into one of the following categories. Please note, the following categories are ideological. Several groups running in Real Life elections often use these terms, but to refer to their political bloc rather than as an indicator of their actual ideological leanings. For instance, the contemporary United States’ meaning of ‘liberal’ refers to ‘social liberalism’ here, for the most part, while ‘conservativism’ combines some tenants of classical liberalism (where it concerns free-market capitalism, that is) and Oakeshottian/Burkean conservatism (morals and fear of change).

The Republicans: A History of the Grand Old Party

Gould, "The Republicans: A History of the Grand Old Party" English | ISBN: 0199936625 | 2014 | 416 pages | PDF | 5 MB The Republicans is a revised and updated edition of Lewis L. Gould'-s 2003 history of the Republican party. The book retains the features that made the first edition a success—a fast-paced account of Republican fortunes, a deep knowledge of the evolution of national political history, and an acute feel for the interplay of personalities and ideology.

All the main players in the Republican story are captured in penetrating sketches and deft analysis. Gould brings to life such forgotten Republican leaders as James G. The Paradoxes and Crisis of Contemporary Conservatism.
