Description

Soon after Harriet Monroe established her ground-breaking Poetry in 1912, she invited Ezra Pound, then an obscure American poet living in London, to become a regular contributor. In addition to submitting his own work, he “discovered” James Joyce, Robert Frost, D. H. Lawrence, William Carlos Williams, and T. S. Eliot. Poetry has withstood the test of time and remains the most prestigious magazine of its genre.
