H.D.'s post-World War II writings: a chronology -- Introduction -- De-formations: trauma, genre, and the sword went out to sea -- Autobiography and ghost story -- Mysticism and time travel -- Märchen and historical fiction -- Critique: gendered narratives of nation and imperialism -- By Avon River, arranged marriage, and Shakespeare's empire -- Disappearing bodies in white rose and the red -- Interlude -- The mystery -- Re-formations: postwar ethics and identity -- Facing the past, becoming l'Autre -- The invisible other: the psychoanalyst as spy.
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.
