Anything That Burns You: A Portrait of Lola Ridge, Radical Poet by Terese Svoboda

The first full-length biography of Lola Ridge, a trailblazer for women, poetry, and human rights far ahead of her time

This rich and detailed account of the life and world of Lola Ridge, poet, artist, editor, and activist for the cause of women??s rights, workers?? rights, racial equality and social reform. From her childhood as a newly arrived Irish immigrant in the grim mining towns of New Zealand to her years as a budding poet and artist in Sydney, Australia, to her migration to America and the cities of San Francisco, Chicago, and New York. At one time considered one of the most popular poets of her day, she later fell out of critical favor due to her realistic and impassioned verse that looked head on at the major social woes of society. Moreover, her work and appearances alongside the likes of Margaret Sanger, Emma Goldman, Will Durant, and other socialists and radicals put her in the line of fire not only of the police and government, but also the literary pundits who criticized her activism as being excessive and melodramatic. This lively portrait gives a veritable who??s who of all the key players in the arts, literature, and radical politics of the time, in which Lola Ridge stood front and center.
