« Transnational Mourning [Catharine R. Stimpson] | Main | SLS @ KGB [by Moira Egan] »

December 02, 2008


I would like to comment on the Boyleston poem but I'm at a total loss. I wonder what people 75 years from now (if there are any) will be saying about the literary artifacts of our time. Thank you.

I love going over old magazines and finding (as you did) that the ads are sometimes more fun than the copy. You give a great summary of the 1925 version. If you continue reading in the archives: what are the best poems to have appeared in the Atlantic, the magazine that rejected Emily Dickinson? I must also confess I'm curious to know what Mrs Harding added to "our limited peony literature." Thank you, LO.

Great article.

Thanks for the comments, everyone. David, that sounds like an interesting project!

Mrs. Harding's book is "Peonies in the Little Garden." I'm thinking it's probably out of print...
