The Oxford Critical and Cultural History of Modernist Magazines

Alexander Howard

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the histories of the ‘little magazines’ Troubadour, Blues, Smoke, and Furioso, all of which published poetry in the highly charged decade of the 1930s. It investigates the existence of points of comparison, debate, and dialogue between the four periodicals and opens up the wider arena of literary debate, social engagement, and political commitment in the 1930s. What is revealed is a narrative taking the ‘little magazine’ from an era of experiment to the conventional verse and isolation of the academic periodical.
