Yasna Bozhkova

Yasna Bozhkova is a PhD Candidate at the University of Paris 3 (Sorbonne Nouvelle), specializing in transatlantic Modernism and twentieth-century American poetry. Her dissertation entitled “‘Sappho lunaire’: Mina Loy’s “Meteoric Idiom” focuses on Loy’s hybrid aesthetics where tension between disparate and often discordant elements is left deliberately unresolved. While Loy engaged with the aesthetics of Decadence, Futurism, Imagism, Dada, and Surrealism among others, she refused to fully adhere to any artistic programme, working instead through a constant shift of the aesthetic paradigm which introduces an ironic relativity between different forms of modernity. Yasna Bozhkova has recently presented her research on Mina Loy at the 15th and 16th annual conferences of the Modernist Studies Association, as well as at the inaugural conference of the French Society of Modernist Studies. Her article “‘Fever 103°’: The Poetics of Paroxysm in the Common Text of Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton” appeared in the spring 2014 issue of the journal L’Atelier.
