If modernism began in the magazines, as Robert Scholes and Clifford Wulfman argue, then the study of modern culture should begin with these publications. Scholes and Wulfman's radically inclusive approach not only considers the "little" modernist magazines alongside the "big" or mass magazines often dismissed as antithetical to modernism's elite culture, but also insists that scholars must investigate their contents as a whole-from poetry to advertising-to appreciate their full significance. The book's appendix also reprints a previously uncollected critique of popular British magazines from 1917 and 1918 by Ezra Pound.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Modernism in the Magazines is at once a clarion call for scholars and students of modernism to transform the field through periodical studies and to harness the as-yet under-utilized potential of digital databases, but it is also a refreshingly useful guidebook showing readers how to do just that. There truly is no other book out there like this."-Mark Morrisson, Pennsylvania State University

-- Mark Morrisson

"Scholes and Wulfman have produced a masterful introduction to modernist periodical studies that will be an invaluable resource for students as well as to scholars of Anglo-American literary modernism."-Ann Ardis, University of Delaware

-- Ann Ardis

"Modernism in the Magazines sets the course for the emergent field of modern periodical studies and will become essential reading for the revitalized study and teaching of modernism."-Sean Latham, University of Tulsa

-- Sean Latham
"Having recently woken up the editor of a literary magazine, I found myself riveted by this book. . . . I suspect even nonprofessionals will enjoy Pound's original articles, which Scholes and Wulfman reprint in their entirety-and will be charmed by the author's unabashed pleasure in old ephemera. . . . It is a melancholy truth that most ads age better than most poems. Scholes and Wulfman embrace that truth without holding it against either kind of communication. They don't make us choose between loving the moderns and understanding how they paid the bills."-Lorin Stein, Harpers -- Lorin Stein * Harpers *
"[A]n introduction to the field that is ideal for teaching (and priced so that it can be used in the classroom) as well as useful to scholars with an interest in periodical studies. . . . [an] indispensible volume."-Barbara Green, Clio -- Barbara Green * Clio *
