Description

The transnational modernist Mina Loy (1882-1966) embodied the avant-garde in many literary and artistic media. This book positions her as a theorist of the avant-garde and of what it means to be an artist. Foregrounding Loy's critical interrogation of Futurist, Dadaist, Surrealist, and "Degenerate" artisthood, and exploring her poetic legacies today, Curious Disciplines reveals Loy's importance in an entirely novel way. Examining the primary texts produced by those movements themselves-their manifestos, magazines, pamphlets, catalogues, and speeches-Sarah Hayden uses close readings of Loy's poetry, prose, polemics, and unpublished writings to trace her response to how these movements wrote themselves, collectively, into being.
