Body Sweats: The Uncensored Writings of Elsa Baroness von Freytag Loringhoven

by Elsa Baroness von Freytag Loringhoven
Edited by Irene Gammel and Suzanne Zelazo

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.
