Forlagets beskrivelse
“Demonstrating how literary aspects of H.D.’s late prose contribute to politically-attuned cultural work, Vetter astutely counters longstanding claims about H.D.’s ‘escapism.’”—Miranda Hickman, coeditor of Rereading the New Criticism
 
“An important, meticulously researched treatment of H.D.’s post–WWII writing that helps us understand her multiple genre-bending and time warping moves.”—Madelyn Detloff, author of The Value of Virginia Woolf
 
A Curious Peril examines the prose penned by modernist writer H.D. in the aftermath of World War II, a little-known body of work that has been neglected by scholars, and argues that the trauma H.D. experienced in London during the war profoundly changed her writing. Lara Vetter reveals a shift in these writings from classical “escapist” settings to politically aware explorations of gender, spirituality, nation, and imperialism.
           
Impelled by the shocking political crises of the early 1940s, and increasingly sensitive to imperialist logics, H.D. began to write about the history of modern Europe using innovative forms and genres. She directed her well-known interest in mysticism and otherworldly themes toward the material world of empire-building and perpetual war. Vetter contends that H.D.’s postwar work is essential to understanding the writer’s entire career, marking her entrance into late modernism and even foretelling crucial aspects of postmodernism.
 

 
Bibliotekernes beskrivelse
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.
