Abstract:

"Mina Loy: Woman and Poet represents the first substantial collection of criticism devoted to this long neglected major Modernist poet."--BOOK JACKET. "Loy (1882-1966) made a career of friendship. Before World War I, she actively participated in the Futurist movement in Italy. During the war years she was a friend and associate of William Carlos Williams and other writers associated with New York Dada. In the 1920s, she was a vivid presence in the Paris literary scene. Her poems during these years were saluted by such critics as Ezra Pound, who linked her to Marianne Moore. But in the 1930s she gradually disappeared from sight, and she is the last major Modernist poet to be recovered."--Jacket.
