The Oxford Critical and Cultural History of Modernist Magazines

The Hound & Horn emerged from Harvard University in 1927. While one of its founders, Varian Fry, seemed to want to keep the magazine as a Harvard miscellany, its co-founder Lincoln Kirstein's enthusiasm for Eliot's Criterion provided him with different ambitions for the magazine. When R. P. Blackmur joined the editors, and Fry left, the link with Harvard became severed and the magazine moved to New York in 1930; Kirstein was now free to steer the magazine into the vacant critical ground left when The Dial closed in 1929. The magazine's editors often seemed ambivalent towards modernism, feting Eliot and Ezra Pound, but publishing critical reviews of Joyce and avant-garde magazines such as transition . And while they published drafts from Pound's Cantos, ran several of his letters to the magazine, and took their title from his poem ‘White Stag’, the editors of Hound & Horn refused to publish work by writers secured by Pound such as Basil Bunting, Robert McAlmon, John Rodker, and Louis Zukofsky.
