Hilda's girlhood reminiscences are littered with the corpses of dead girls and deceased women: her sister Edith and half-sibling Alice (by an unnamed dead lady, Martha, Charles's first wife); and, of course, Mama's legendary sister Fanny.
Alvin, Charles Doolittle's elder brother, had died of typhoid fever during the Civil War, and it was Charles who suffered a guilt of survivorship exacerbated by his mother's disappointment that Alvin, not Charles, had succumbed to the devastations of a bloody struggle among brothers fighting to subjugate a decadent southern aristocracy.
Hilda, it seems, feels emotionally seduced and betrayed by an idol whose feet of clay and skull of glass challenge her childhood faith in patriarchal authority, as well as the illusion of a coherent, coterminous self constructed in the eye of the omnipotent father.

 Hilda Doolittle
Her poems were based upon the Imagist school, which was centered on the principles of direct treatment of the subject, use of only those words most essential to the presentation, and an emphasis on flow rather than rhythm.
Hilda's marriage was troubled, and she usually lived in the downstairs section of the home she shared with her husband, while Richard openly shared the upstairs with his mistress.

But her biography and her own later writings make evident the fact that there was a different purpose in the life of Hilda Doolittle too: a purpose completely against art, which no one ever clearly criticized - certainly not Freud.
This feeling is gone after by Hilda Doolittle: the rose is not seen as soft; it is seen as cut in rock.
