The Little Review
BEGINNING IN THE 1910s, a combination of new ideas and new technologies generated a proliferation of little magazines. These magazines made possible the revolutionary movement known as modernism.
TODAY, we are using the world-wide-web to produce a database dedicated to these important periodicals. Our website makes it possible to find information about little magazines in one central, accessible location.
LITTLE MAGAZINES housed revolutionary artistic and political movements ranging from Imagism, Futurism, Cubism, Surrealism, and Dada, to Anarchism, Socialism, Communism, and Feminism. Little magazines provided a stage for modernist innovations ranging from the New Art and the New Music, to the New Negro and the New Woman. Little magazines championed individual liberties ranging from free verse, to free speech and free love.
THIS WEBSITE houses bibliographic information about selected modernist little magazines. It aims to recover links between the various writers, artists, activists, and movements that constitute the web of modernism.
THIS WEBSITE has been compiled by undergraduates at Davidson College enrolled in the course ENG 487: The Web of Modernism. The site is maintained by Suzanne W. Churchill, Associate Professor of English, and hosted by Davidson College.
