Kim Sigouin

University Press of Florida

Kim Sigouin’s treatment of H.D.’s manifesto and film writings brings out that author’s exploration of the body’s entanglement with nonhuman processes. For H.D., Sigouin argues, the body becomes a lens for translating the world, and therefore a new way of seeing the world, a way of seeing she sought to expressing in her own writing—a vehicle for this new ecological affective language of the body.

Keywords:   Affective language, Manifesto, H.D
