The Oxford Critical and Cultural History of Modernist Magazines

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines how three different magazines — Good Morning, The Freeman, and The Modern Quarterly — contributed to political and cultural debate from a broadly leftist perspective. Two of them, Good Morning and The Freeman, did not survive the decade's first half. Good Morning was more concerned with political than cultural activity. The Freeman incorporated an assessment of avant-garde art into a broad consideration of cultural developments. The Modern Quarterly tried to fit an informed understanding of contemporary cultural trends into an overarching argument for fundamental social change.

Keywords:   American magazine, leftist, periodical, political magazine, satire, social change, avant-garde art
