The lost lunar Baedeker : poems of Mina Loy by Mina Loy( Book )

28 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There was a time when it was common to couple Mina Loy's name with that of W.C. Williams or Marianne Moore: her advanced contemporaries considered her a literary and artistic genius - a descendant of Sappho by way of Emily Dickinson. But the public was scandalized by her work, and some critics openly scorned it. Not only were her Futurist-inspired techniques unlike anything most readers had encountered before, but her subjects - procreation, parturition, prostitution, suicide, addiction, retardation - were considered shocking even by some modernists. Mina Loy vanished from the literary scene just as dramatically as she arrived on it, and for most of the century her bold experiments have remained a well-kept secret. But in recent years Loy's work has been discovered by a new generation of poets and critics, and has begun to surface in revisionist anthologies. What has been needed is a reliable text of the essential Loy poems. To assemble The Lost Lunar Baedeker, Roger Conover has rescued Loy's poems and prose works from the Dada magazines and other ephemeral publications where they first appeared. All of Loy's notorious Futurist and feminist satires are included, as are many poems from her Paris and New York periods, the complete cycle of "Love Songs," and several previously unknown texts. Detailed notes accompany the text
Stories and essays of Mina Loy by Mina Loy( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stories and Essays of Mina Loy is the first book-length volume of Mina Loy's narrative writings and critical work ever published. This volume brings together her short fiction, as well as hybrid works that include modernized fairy tales, a Socratic dialogue, and a ballet. Loy's narratives address issues such as abortion and poverty, and what she called "the sex war" is an abiding theme throughout. Stories and Essays of Mina Loy also contains dramatic works that parody the bravado and misogyny of Futurism and demonstrate Loy's early, effective use of absurdist technique. Essays and commentaries on aesthetics, historical events, and religion complete this beguiling collection, cementing Mina Loy's place as one of the great writers of the twentieth century."--Publisher description
Insel by Mina Loy( Book )

15 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and French and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Loosely based on Loy's real friendship with the German painter Richard Oelze, this is the only novel by the inimitable modernist poet and artist Mina Loy, which was never published during her lifetime. It tells the story of an unusual friendship between the narrator (a stand-in for Loy herself) and Insel, a surrealist painter of great talent but terrible living habits

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couv. indique : La poésie de Mina Loy, écrite entre 1914 et 1953, compte parmi les oeuvres les plus inventives et les plus subversives du XXe siècle. Admirée par T. S. Eliot et Ezra Pound, elle fabrique un instrument langagier - scalpel, loupe - aussi précis de manipulation qu'exact de vision. Il n'est ni vie ni mort rassemble pour la première fois toute la poésie de cette figure majeure du modernisme, poète culte dans le monde anglo-américain, encore à célébrer en France

Becoming modern : the life of Mina Loy by Carolyn Burke( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poet and visual artist Mina Loy (1882-1966) has long had an underground reputation as an exemplary avant-gardist. Born in London of mixed Jewish and English parentage, and a much photographed beauty, she moved in the pivotal circles of international modernism - in Florence as Gertrude Stein's friend and Marinetti's lover; in New York as Marcel Duchamp's co-conspirator and Djuna Barnes's confidante; in Mexico with her greatest love, the notorious boxer-poet Arthur Cravan; in Paris with the Surrealists and Man Ray. Carolyn Burke's riveting, authoritative biography brings this highly original and representative figure wonderfully alive, in the process giving us a new picture of modernism - and one woman's important contribution to it
