The Lost Lunar Baedeker: Poems of Mina Loy
Author: Mina Loy
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux (1997)
Mina Loy's technique and subjects—prostitution, menstruation, destitution, and suicide—shocked 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.
