About the author (1997)

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.
