Colleagues--I am pleased to announce to you that a digital edition of
Poetry: A Magazine of Verse from 1912 to 1922 is in the process of
appearing on the Modernist Journals Project web site. Additional
volumes will be added over the coming months, and missing issues will
fill any gaps in the volumes presently available. Working on this
edition I have been impressed over and over again by the vitality of
the magazine--not only the stunning array of modern poets who
appeared in its pages, but the intensity and lucidity of the critical
debates over the proper form and content of modern poetry. As Dryden
once wrote of Chaucer, "here is God's plenty"--but in this case,
Harriet Monroe was the supplier of the plenty. She deserves more
recognition as a major shaper of modernism.
This digital edition is based mainly on copies of the original
issues, with covers and advertising intact, supplied by the
University of Chicago Library, supplemented in some cases by copies
from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and Tulsa University's
McFarlin Library and by the MJP itself. We are very grateful to
Chicago and the other libraries for their support of this project.
I urge you to explore this new resource, and to think of ways to use
it in your study and teaching of modern culture and literature.
