Jan Horner’s poetry has always focused on extraordinary women and Mama Dada is no exception. Baroness Else von Freytag Loringhoven is perhaps her most outrageous subject yet.


WINNER: Aqua Books/Lansdowne Prize for Poetry

Jan Horner’s poetry has always focused on extraordinary women and Mama Dada is no exception. Baroness Else von Freytag-Loringhoven was called the “first American Dada” and could be considered a “proto-punk” or an early performance artist. Horner’s sharp and elegant poems reveal Else’s character and her rough and extravagant life through her eyes and the eyes of her suitors.
