THE GHETTO AND OTHER POEMS by Lola Ridge

THE GHETTO AND OTHER POEMS by Lola Ridge

12.00

Originally published in 1918, this centennial edition celebrates the first collection from this heralded but under-read poet. Feminist, anarchist, and champion of the working class, Lola Ridge released five books of poetry and was the editor of modernist avant-garde magazine Broom. The poems in this collection are richly visual, and deal largely with labor issues as well as her adopted home of New York City. Weaving together fierce political agitation with occasional sensuality, this book is broken into four sections: The Ghetto, Manhattan Lights, Labor, and Accidentals. Second Edition of 100.
