This chapter examines the histories of the following university literary magazines: The Morningside, Yale Review, The Columbia Review, The Wake, Chicago Review, The Georgia Review, Epoch, The Beloit Poetry Journal, TriQuarterly, and The Big Table. University literary magazines sought to promote established and accepted writers, some taking occasional risks with ‘new voices’ and younger talent, but most steering clear of modernist controversy by staying within the boundaries of canonical orthodoxy. However, the powerful forces of aesthetic modernism could not be held back indefinitely despite the strictures and enforcements of university Deans and Regents, and university literary magazines gradually began publishing more socially risqué and aesthetically challenging pieces. This process continued until certain strands of modernism themselves achieved a form of canonicity by the late 1950s and early 1960s.
