This chapter discusses the history of The Double Dealer, which was formed in 1921 to ‘modernize southern letters’. The magazine published many new writers including very early works by Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, and Jean Toomer. However, the question of how far it supported Southern writers and artists is an ambiguous one, given that many of its most important discoveries were not from the nearby locale. Another instance of the ambiguous stance of The Double Dealer was that towards Europe: it published Paris letters from Alfred Kreymborg and Djuna Barnes, detailing the exploits of American exiles, while suggesting in one editorial that the vogue for Europe was finished. More positively, however, it published European work in translation, such as Anton Chekhov, Jules Laforgue, and Stéphane Mallarmé, thus bypassing the North/South debate in favour of a more typical modernist internationalism.
