The Oxford Critical and Cultural History of Modernist Magazines

This chapter discusses the history of Rogue, a coterie magazine that gave voice to the cultural tastes and artistic ideals of supporters of the avant-garde. Rogue's blend of journalistic columns, poetry, and advertisements for cigars and furs, along with its mocking tone and frequent bon mots, gave it an air of patrician superiority compared to the majority of Greenwich Village's ‘little magazines’. Through lively satire the magazine attacked the conservative values of what it regarded as an obsolescent older generation, and eschewed any serious social or political reflection, or discussion of war.

Keywords:   American magazine, modernist magazine, periodical, avant-garde, coterie magazine, Greenwich Village, little magazine, satire
