Loy's Lunar Lexicon
A Lexicon from Mina Loy's 1923 "Lunar Baedecker"
* * *
This site creates a lexicon from Mina Loy’s first volume of poetry Lunar Baedecker.
Loy is a poet known for her expansive vocabulary and unique word choice.
Published in 1923 by Contact Press with “Baedecker” misspelled, the volume is divided into two parts: 1. Poems 1921-1923, and 2. Poems 1914-1915.
Very little scholarly attention has been given to the collection as a whole. Our lexicon hopes to encourage further study.
