Description: Mina Loy's technique and subjects - prostitution, menstruation, destitution, and suicide - shock even some modernists and she vanished from the poetry scene as dramatically as she had appeared on it. Roger Conover has resuced the key texts from the pages of forgotten publications, and has included all of the futurist and feminist satires, poems from Loy's Paris and New York periods, and the complete cycle of "Love Songs," as well as previously unknown texts and detailed notes.

Mina Loy was born in London, England in 1882. A central figure in the history of modernism, her writing commanded the attention of Ezra Pound and Yvor Winters in the Little Review and the Dial respectively, era-defining journals that published Joyce's Ulysses and Eliot's "The Waste Land." Aligning herself with Futurism, Dada, and Surrealism, Loy influenced pivotal figures such as Marcel Duchamp and Djuna Barnes.
