Precision and Soul in Modernism
In 1922, Robert Musil wrote of a ³miscommunication between the intellect and
the soul.² ³We do not have too much intellect and too little soul², he
continued, ³but too little intellect in matters of the soul². This panel
focuses on the ways in which the intellect and the soul are made actively to
communicate in modernist texts in which the impersonal, the abstract, the
logical and the technological provide a means of accessing the poetic,
mystical, epiphanic and extraordinary aspects of the everyday real.
