The Oxford Critical and Cultural History of Modernist Magazines

Gregory Baptista

Oxford University Press

The ‘little magazine’ was integral to the development of modernism as a cross-cultural and transatlantic movement and the articulations of its ideas. Several magazines helmed by American expatriates cropped up in Paris and other European locations throughout the 1920s. This chapter focuses on the earliest one, Arthur Moss's Gargoyle, which appeared even as that first wave of expatriates was making its way across the Atlantic; This Quarter, which appeared at mid-decade under the fiery and inspired but all-too-brief editorship of Ernest Walsh; and Harold J. Salemson's bilingual Tambour, which offered a picture of modernism at its most inclusive and poised on the cusp of a new decade.
