Summary
  • This book argues that the trauma the modernist writer H.D. endured during World War II birthed a body of writing strikingly different from that of her earlier career. Vetter's study focuses on the author's post-war prose which has received little critical attention relative to her Imagist poetry. These postwar writings bring together the material, political world with the realm of the mystical and otherworldly--the other hallmark of H.D.'s writing. Ultimately, Vetter shines a much-needed light on these late works to reveal a more complete picture of H.D.'s oeuvre and provide an invaluable source for future modernist scholarship
