Spanning several decades of her life, multiple continents, and significant events, this collection of Hope Mirrlees’s poetry includes previously unpublished work and the modernist writer’s later poems and essays, written circa 1920. Also included is the full text of Paris: A Poema daylong, psycho-geographical flânerie through the streets and metro tunnels of postWorld War I Paris. Groundbreaking and illuminating, this volume is a testament to Mirrlees’s contribution to 20th-century poetry.
