Hope Mirrlees (1887-1978) was born in Kent and grew up in Scotland and South Africa. She studied at Newnham College, Cambridge, and in 1922 moved to Paris. Her first novel was published in 1919, followed by her long poem, Paris (Hogarth Press, 1920). Her other two novels are The Counterplot (1924) and the fantasy novel Lud-in-the-Mist (1926). Mirrlees converted to Catholicism and in the 1940s moved to South Africa. Three slim volumes of her poetry appeared during these later years, including Moods and Tensions (1976). She eventually returned to England where she died aged 91. Sandeep Parmar has a PhD on the modernist poet Mina Loy and is currently a Visiting Scholar at New York University.
'Sandeep Parmar's edition of Hope Mirrlees' poetry is a testimony to modern scholarship and provides a missing piece of the British modernist jigsaw.' --Matthew Mitton, Women: A Cultural Review
