Focusing on the intersection of scientific and religious discourse in the works of H.D., Mina Loy, and Jean Tommer, Lara Vetter argues that a peculiarly modern spiritual understanding of science appealed to modernist writers as a way of negotiating the perceived threats to a radically unstable body. Analyzing literary and extraliterary writing, this study offers articulate conclusions on how these writers came to construct their own worldviews in response to the arts, science, and religion of their time."--Jacket." ;
