Lola Ridge

Lola Ridge, born Rose Emily Ridge (12 December 1873 Dublin – 19 May 1941 Brooklyn) was an Irish-American anarchist poet and an influential editor of avant-garde, feminist, and Marxist publications. She is best remembered for her long poems and poetic sequences, published in numerous magazines and collected in five books of poetry.

Along with other political poets of the early Modernist period, Ridge has received renewed critical attention since the beginning of the 21st century and is praised for writing poetry from harsh urban life. A new selection of her poetry was published in 2007 and a biography, ''Anything That Burns You: A Portrait of Lola Ridge, Radical Poet '' in 2016.
