Modern Journals

These pages contain researched reports into a wide range of modern literary magazines. All of the magazines we looked at were contained on the Modernist Journals Project website, which was an invaluable resource for us in our research because of its full-run scans of these magazines. For our purpose here, we define the Modernist period as 1904 to 1930. These two dates mark the beginning of the earliest magazine we looked at (Dana in 1904) and the latest Modernist magazine we looked at (The Smart Set, which ended in 1930). These magazines were deeply influential on the writing of the time and many of the works within them continue to be important works of literature today.
