INTRODUCING LOLA RIDGE
Posted on August 20 2018
We're delighted to present our Autumn Special Commendation, the collected early works of the lesser-known radical modernist poet Lola Ridge. This substantial volume by Little Island Press brings her fiery feminist poetry back into focus and gives her the recognition she deserves.
To the Many: Collected Early Works by Lola Ridge, edited by Daniel Tobin, published by Little Island Press
Born in Ireland, raised in New Zealand and reaching artistic maturity in New York, Lola Ridge was transnational long before the term gained currency. She established herself as one of the most notable poets in America with the publication of The Ghetto in 1918 and continued to write socially and spiritually conscious poetry up until her death in 1941. This new edition of her early poems intends to redress the serious neglect her work has endured over the past seventy-five years. It includes the early feminist essay ‘Woman and the Creative Will’ and the never before published manuscript-collection ‘Verses’.
