Summary

Paris: A Poem is a daring, experimental, psychogeographic long poem written by the British writer Hope Mirrlees. Offering a snapshot of post-war Paris, it describes a journey through the city from day to night by means of innovative and playful typography, collage and fragmentation. This would be a centenary edition, reproducing the original design and setting of the very first, published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press in 1920.
