Behind the Scenes at the Little Magazines: Women Editing Modernism
Between the two World Wars, the most important little magazines in the United States were Poetry, The Little Review and The Dial; all three were edited by women. Poetry helped to launch the careers of Ezra Pound, Wallace Stevens and William Carlos Williams; The Little Review published Joyce's Ulysses in 1922 and in the same year, The Dial published T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land. Many of the canonical works of modernism were written by men but published first by women. This talk will look more closely at the influential role women played by women as editors of little magazines.
To mark the closing of 'Outrageously Modern! Avant-Garde Magazines that Shocked Britain 1884-1922,' Palace Green Library and the Department of English Studies would like to welcome you to a closing series of public exhibition talks.
Entry to the talks is included in our usual admission charge but seating is limited and available on a first-come-first-served basis. We regret that it is not possible to reserve seats.
