I tend to like poetry and this magazine caters to all with its 20 to 30 pages of poetry, short stories, continuous novels, critiques of theater, and book reviews. It held work from famous writers like Novels from James Joyce and Wyndham Lewis and Critiques from Ezra Pound and T.S. Eliot. The pages are laid out into two columns and divided by the name of the work of literature and the name of the author. Besides that, of the written kind you rarely get to see a lot of art in the Egoist, but you do get two or three pictures in all of its work.
The Egoist was a continuation from “The New Freewoman” which was originally a continuation from “The Freewoman” and was founded by Dora Marsden who was also the editor alongside Harriet Shaw Weaver. Some of its well-known work was “Ulysses” and “A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man” by James Joyce that was published in parts keeping the readers coming back month after month. The one thing that seems to be constant is change and the Egoist showed us this when it started out publishing biweekly, then changing to monthly, then changing to bimonthly, then randomly publishing work until its end in December of 1919. Some of the work published seemed to be in response to other work so you get to see a response and sometimes a critique from one writer to another.
In comparison to its predecessors, The Egoist seemed to leave behind its concentration on feminist problems and cater to other problems like problems within tradition and society in its writing. We get a couple of glimpses of this along with why this magazine was seen as a great example of modernist writing when reading Ulysses when he wrote “History, Stephen said, is a nightmare from which I am trying to awake” (Joyce 14) giving us a reader a good way of seeing what the “Make it new movement” was about. This magazine had a couple of other modernist writers that focused their work on letting us see what was wrong during this time and encouraged the movement towards change such as Remy DE Gourmont in “Tradition and other things” when writing “Though it is not very wrong to give way to this tendency, it is better to attempt a new path” (Gourmont 261) letting us the readers get a good understanding of why change is not only good but necessary to move forward in life and sometimes that means not only change but also leaving “traditions” behind.
The Egoist was also seen as important to imagist poets making way to a new kind of poetry very important in the modernist era. A piece of work that spoke to me was “The bullet speaks to the Poet” By Helen Hoyt, giving life to something that is an object but in the hand of a person becomes alive and has the power to take life while causing a great amount of damage. This poem was a great example of imagery and helped the reader visualize exactly what the writer was trying to convey in her work with simple words like in its ending when she wrote “Look at me. Hear me. I am a bullet” (Hoyt 96). Overall the purpose and the mission of this magazine seemed to be to point out flaws in our systems whether it was in society, culture, and religion encouraging the change needed to be made to make things better all while giving us an escape with its poetry that gave us beautiful imagery through the words of its poets.

second post: The Saturday Evening Post is one of America’s oldest little magazines published. The Saturday Evening Post was originally founded in 1728 by Benjamin Franklin under the name of The Pennsylvania Gazette, and around 1820 started to publish under the new name. It is claimed to be one of the most widely circulated magazines in the United States during the 20th century. In the specific volume 183, issue 29, given by https://modjourn.org/, the magazine is a precursor to modern print media found in the later 20th century. This volume includes a selection of short stories such as “The Million Dollar Twins” by Henry Rowland or “Hepzibah” by Otheman Stevens. An interesting note about how this publication is unique is that every issue there is a mix of entertainment in the short stories shared along with news articles, such as an exclusive interview about gold production and profit with Thomas A. Edison, or the history of railroad operations in the United States with a simplified income statement included along in the article, to a biography of the new chief justice at the time, Mr. White. Even the articles have an opinion, such as the railroad article author questioning fairer wages for workers, as evidenced by the railroads increasing profit margins. The magazine has many pictures and illustrations. Throughout the magazine, the audience can also find various print advertisements for brands that are still around today – Campbell’s, Heinz, Gillette; and advertisements about chocolates, electric cars (why America popularized gas powered cars instead are for a discussion for a different time), clothes for men, women, and children; and others that one would typically see in print media today. Although there is not a mission statement, the overall idea of this publication is to inform – through the use of articles; and entertain – through the short stories. Though the mix of the two forms, the Saturday Evening Post allows the audience to become more immersed in the subjective experiences that the short stories provide.
In the short story “Eve’s Second Husband” by Corra Harris, the author shares a story of heartbreak where the narrator loses her husband to another woman. Modernism inspires this story when the narrator proclaims “I had lost that quality of personal feminine assurance which is called attractiveness in women, there is not in this world a more durable or homely person than a middle-aged woman who has given her whole mind to her household duties, she is good and dependable … but she is not adorable” (Harris 17). The author shares a new way of thinking and sharing problems that many can relate to. This shows also a rejection of tradition because she questions why a woman being more attractive has more value than a woman that is hardworking. It is interesting and inspiring to hear stories around these subjects that were published well over 100 years ago. The incarcerator then devises a scheme to “involve Adam [her ex-husband] so deeply financially that he would have something more pressing to think about than pleasure parties with a questionable companion” (Harris 18). The narrator shares an interesting insight of a woman seeking justice for heartbreak – a modernist tale that encapsules the slogan to “Make it New!”.
Overall, The Saturday Evening Post is a little magazine that shares modernist short stories combined with news articles to provide both entertainment and information to the audience. In my opinion, I think that this is a very progressive publication, as evidenced by the articles and short stories. After researching and reading this magazine – it is clear where modern print media draws inspiration.
English Assignment Help To help prepare us for writing the “Rhetorical Review,” you will complete a series of 3 mini-reviews. Specific instructions will be provided for each mini-review, but essentially, you will explain in detail the main ideas of the text and evaluate the strategies the writer/speaker uses to communicate their message. As discussed on the “Rhetorical Review” assignment sheet, a review is more than a summary of the content; it’s also a critical analysis of the text and your reactions to it. Therefore, the mini-reviews should include both summary and evaluation. You should consider not just what it says, but also how it says it.
In addition, each mini-review should be 300-400 words. This is not a lot of space to summarize and evaluate, but that is the point. The mini-reviews will force you to be concise and specific with your words so that by the time you begin writing your “Rhetorical Review,” your ideas will be edited, exact, and refined.
Step 1:For this discussion, you will choose one text from your text set. Write a summary of the main ideas of the text, including the specific intended audience this text addresses. This is where you discuss what the text says. Then, move on to a discussion of how the text says it. You can choose to discuss any aspect of the text, as long as you can provide specific examples from the text to support your points. Aspects you might discuss include organization, vocabulary, sources referenced (type and/or frequency), use of visuals, anecdotes, etc. (Please watch the Rhetorical Choices video: Rhetorical Choices.) Since you only have 300-400 words, you should focus specifically on the aspect(s) of the text that seem the most significant to how effectively the text communicates its message to its intended audience.
Step 2:After you have posted, you should read over other students’ responses and comment on 2 other posts. You can comment on any person’s post, not just someone who is responding to the same text as you. Please comment by:
Finding someone who brings up something in their evaluation that you did not discuss in your own and commenting on what you find interesting and/or surprising about their post.
Finding someone who brings up something in their evaluation that you did discuss in yours and commenting on whether your evaluations were similar or different from one another. (For example, you and your peer might have both addressed the organization of a text; however, this does not mean that you came to the same conclusions about the organization.) What are the specific similarities and/or differences between your discussions?
Your response should indicate that you read their post and have thought carefully about your responses to their ideas/experiences. Your response to each student post should be around 100 words long.
