          Abstract

          This article triangulates three scenes in which law, psychoanalysis and literary modernism intersect, in order to excavate differing conceptions of the idea of denial. The article begins with a consideration of the landmark censorship case against the editors of The Little Review, Margaret Anderson and Jane Heap, for serialising James Joyce’s ‘obscene’ modernism; the article then shifts to the poet HD’s account of psychoanalysis with Sigmund Freud; and finally reflects on how HD’s poetic practice re-articulates ideas around psychoanalysis, law and denial. Drawing on thinkers across the fields of poetics, psychoanalysis and critical legal studies, this article argues that the concept of denial indexes a fundamental tension between the theoretical frameworks of psychoanalysis and the law. This article further argues that HD’s poetic practice seeks a mode of writing which can both represent and resist such theoretical constraint and contradiction.
