Overview

The correspondence in this brief collection tells of journeys, separations, fantasies, and misunderstandings experienced by the colorful Arthur Cravan, all written to his wife Mina Loy prior to his mysterious disappearance in the Gulf of Mexico. The complete and partial letters and postcards are not mere love letters but rather an introduction to a true character who embodied the worries, activities, and audacities of early 20th-century culture. Even though Mina did not love Arthur at first, it is quite apparent in the content of this book that he was completely struck by her immediately.La correspondencia en esta recopilación breve narra viajes, separaciones, fantasías y desencuentros experimentados por el pintoresco Arthur Cravan, y fue escrita para su mujer Mina Loy antes de la misteriosa desaparición de Cravan en el Golfo de México. Las cartas, algunas completas y otras parciales, y las tarjetas postales no son unas simples cartas de amor sino una presentación de un verdadero personaje que encarnó las inquietudes, los movimientos y los atrevimientos de la cultura de los primeros años del siglo XX. Aunque Mina no amó a Arthur al principio, es muy evidente por el contenido de este libro que él cayó fulminado ante ella inmediatamente.
