Walter focuses in particular on the ways in which modernist writers such as H. Lawrence, and T.
Eliot adapted modern optics and visual culture to develop an alternative to the self or person as a model of the human subject. Walter argues that scholars have misunderstood aesthetic impersonality as an evacuation of the person when it is instead an interrogation of what exactly goes into a personality.
She shows that modernist impersonality embraced the embodied and incoherent notion of the human subject that resulted from contemporary physiological science and traces the legacy of that impersonality in current affect theory.
