Abstract and Keywords

This chapter probes the centrality of periodicals and ‘little magazines’ to modernism. ‘In the years between 1880 and 1920’, it is argued, ‘periodicals both told the story and were the story’. The chapter extends to the twenty-first century, when digitization projects have reconfigured the way that we engage with periodicals as media. By examining a number of creative bibliographic interventions, it considers how interpretations of these media function as proto-modernist or, alternatively, as eccentric to the principal modernist narratives. Throughout, this chapter attends to the ‘inter-related modernities, sharing the same temporal and textual space’ that emerged within the period’s print culture and which carry on in contemporary research.

Keywords: Periodical, little magazine, print culture, proto-modernist, digitization, W. T. Stead
