6 x 9 trim. LC 96-72053From Library Journal :
This set of scholarly essays is for those interested in the multivalent esperanto of modernist Mina Loy. The unflinching scholar Elisabeth Frost; Loy biographer Carolyn Burke (Becoming Modern, LJ 2/1/96); and Roger Conover, editor of a recent edition of Loy poetry, are among the many contributors who weigh in here to honor the strange and difficult metaphysical inquiry of the poet. Loy's overwriting is explored as a means of "scrutinizing the social and literary marginalization of women," and her work is examined in terms of the emerging modernist techniques of fracture and cubism. Her refusal to approach lyricism as reparation or compensation is viewed here as deliberate discontinuity. Writing such as Loy's allows for a wide variety of scholarly maneuvering, and this volume, with a massive 100-page bibliography, successfully attempts some elucidation of a difficult realm.?Scott Hightower, NYU/Gallatin, New York
