The Oxford Critical and Cultural History of Modernist Magazines

Twentieth-century popular magazines as a depository of modernism have been largely overlooked, and no type of magazine has been as overlooked as the pulp magazine, especially given its popularity and prominence in the first half of the twentieth century. This chapter discusses modernism beyond ‘little magazines’, arguing that modernism was available to the mass public in popular periodicals, perhaps not in such a concentrated way as in ‘little magazines’, but so pervasively as to have, at the very least, a gravitational pull on modernism in general that scholars have left largely unobserved.
