Abstract and Keywords

The little magazine, this article argues, does not just make history: it is history. It is a medium shaped by the material conditions of its time and place, including everything from print technologies and prudish censors to postal rates and paper costs. The little magazine takes on different shapes and actively responds to the particular audience, literary tradition, and print culture out of which it emerges. The sheer variety of structural differences in little magazines indicates just how malleable the form could be as it moved, and how the arrangement of everything from the contents and the cover design to the presence or absence of book reviews, correspondence, distribution lists, and editorial blurbs reflects the complicated process by which this medium negotiated local literary production and the emergence of a global literary field in modernism' aftermath.

Keywords: little magazine, literary production, print technologies, modernism
