MIT Press Release:

As a neurasthenic, kleptomaniac, and man-chasing proto-punk poet and artist, the Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven left in her wake a ripple that is becoming a rip--one hundred years after she exploded onto the New York art scene.

Published more than a century after her arrival in New York, Body Sweats is the first major collection of Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven's poems in English. The Baroness's biographer Irene Gammel and coeditor Suzanne Zelazo have assembled 150 poems, most of them never before published. Many of the poems are themselves art objects, decorated in red and green ink, adorned with sketches and diagrams, presented with the same visceral immediacy they had when they were composed.

"Body Sweats remaps the frontiers of Modernism"

-          Craig Dworkin

"The Dada queen prankster comes to life at long last in all her 'stuttering incandescence.'"

-          Jed Rasula
