This chapter discusses the histories of Ford Madox Ford's the transatlantic review and Ezra Pound's The Exile. Both magazines sought to publish innovative work, which both Pound and Ford liked to differentiate from ‘commercial’ writing. In practice, however, neither of them carried out this strategy in a programmatic fashion, since they both tended to follow their own tastes, published whatever they liked, and relied heavily on personal contacts. The main differences between them were that The Exile was a ‘closed shop’ and that Ford's editorial policy was in no sense dependent on considerations of gender, while Pound's was radically male-centred and exclusionist. Ford's desire to create a public sphere in which a variety of voices might productively commingle was inclusive, whereas Pound was bent on creating a new American civilization in which in at least one respect exclusive, male-centred, and misogynist.
