    1. 4.5 stars rounded upMina Loy packed a lot into her life and to say it was colourful and interesting would be an understatement She was involved with modernism, futurism, avant garde she wrote poetry, a novel, short stories, essays Loy had friendships with Gertrude Stein and Djuna Barnes Her disillusionment with futurism led to her writing a feminist manifesto in 1914 Her friendships ranged widely across Europe and the US and included Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, Man Ray, Marianne Moore t [...]

    2. Important people would be enticed at receptions into the shadows of Spanish leather or Chinese lacquer screens, for a significant talk with Virginia Cosway the lifelong friend of the master There under the arc of the handshake, with a brief undulation of the hip, and the adjustment of the forefinger, the stomach outswung to its notable attitude, as if enticing aesthetic culture into her womb to be reborn for her audience from The Stomach A woman poses before her mother s body The decaying body o [...]

    4. Terribly misrepresented in journals, reviews, and its own back cover alike, this collection of Mina Loy s shorter fictional works and her inane, slapdash essays is nothing short of astonishingly bad.Loy is archetypal awesome on paper An avant garde, pseudo futurist weirdo surrealist writer who knew people like Gertrude Stein and Djuna Barnes what isn t there to love already Lots, apparently This is a poor collection Let me just say first off, that it isn t all Loy s fault Reading through her pat [...]

    5. This is a bit of a mixed bag Some most of the selections are so fucking good, with a few clunkers that clunk mostly in comparison to their surroundings Overall, it s astounding and clever and esoteric and very, very lovely.

    6. Not sure what to make of this book I really enjoyed the essays and a lot of the liberal thinking of social issues that can be applied to today I just couldn t follow the short stories, poems or plays Most, for me, were nonsense and seemed like hallucinations turned into stories Maybe I just not intellectually at the level of Ms Loy, but couldn t give this book high praise Any one else s thoughts

    7. I can t say I LOVE it but it is certainly very clever not in an odious pretentious way I have a feeling I m too dumb to understand SOME stories some though that I DID get were incredibly well done Probably deserves another read the sort of thing that would improve the you think about it But that s common of a modernist work.

    8. At times sharp and funny, dull and confusing and clear, insightful, always poetic The satire on Futurism is funny Reflections on art are very good Most of everything in this book is based on incomplete manuscripts.

    9. Very enjoyable and challenging I ll be dipping back into into this forever It s a must read for students of feminist modernism.

    10. Great collection, but her persistent framing feminism as accepting romanticized aspects of sexism is frustrating.
