This chapter examines the Leftist journals: The Modern Quarterly (1923–40), Blast (1933–4), and The Windsor Quarterly (1933–5). It continues the analysis of The Modern Quarterly begun in Chapter 37 through the 1930s until its demise in 1940. The Modern Quarterly aspired to wide intellectual influence. Primarily a journal of comment and debate, it reviewed creative work and analysed literary trends. Blast and The Windsor Quarterly were less interested in commentary than in publishing creative material, although the latter did publish literary criticism in almost every issue.
