The Selected Poems of Nancy Cunard brings together published and previously unpublished poems written across four decades. From her early years as a coterie poet on the edges of Bloomsbury and avant-garde London, to her frontline activism in the Spanish Civil War, the fight against fascism and racism in Europe and America, to her late life precariously spent in sanatoriums and hospitals, this selection brings Cunard’s transnational modernist project to light through her experimental, passionate writing.
