9781564786302: Stories and Essays of Mina Loy (British Literature Series)

"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.

About the Author:

Mina Loy was a British artist, poety, playwright, novelist, futurist and actress. She is the author of "Lost Lunar Baedeker".

Sara Crangle is a Lecturer at the University of Sussex, UK, and the author of Prosaic Desires: Modernist Knowing, Boredom, Laughter, and Anticipation (Edinburgh UP).

Review:

Marjorie Perloff writes: "Among the great modernist poets, Mina Loy was surely the greatest wit, the most sophisticated commentator on the vagaries of love, the one whose brittle and sardonic laughter continues... to pursue us."
