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.
