"Making No Compromise": Margaret Anderson and the Little Review

Margaret Anderson, editor of the Little Review
Sunday, October 1, 2006 to Friday, January 5, 2007

Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library

Famous for her strong opinions about art as well as for her beauty and wit, radical editor Margaret Anderson was a key figure in American and European Modernism. Between 1914 and 1929, Anderson's pioneering art and literature magazine, the Little Review, published poetry, criticism, and artwork by many of the most significant writers and artists of the 20th century, including William Butler Yeats, Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stein, Pablo Picasso, Hart Crane, Man Ray, Mina Loy, Wyndham Lewis, T.S. Eliot, Sherwood Anderson, and Francis Picabia. James Joyce’s Ulysses appeared serially in the Little Review before it was published in its entirety in 1922; the Little Review and its editor became the subjects of a widely publicized obscenity trial when the United States Post Office deemed some segments of the work obscene and refused to distribute copies.
