The wartime writings of May Sinclair raise important questions about the literary representation of World War One. Sinclair's protagonists are fascinated by a "vortex" of energy they sense as both dangerous and exhilarating, and her narratives simultaneously relish and disavow this fantasmatic investment. Sinclair's writing offers a still relevant lesson about the entanglement of sexual fantasy and collective violence.
