A Curious Peril

Lara Vetter

University Press of Florida

A brief coda turns to H.D.’s memoir End to Torment, penned three years before her death in 1961. It explores how this late prose text picks up the threads of all of her postwar prose and weaves them into a meditation on the role of memory in personal and national narrative. In its spirit of disorder—in its rejection of chronology, its unabashed claims of radical uncertainty—the text resists “history” as we, as individuals and as citizens, tell it.
