In Republic of Words, Susan Goodman brilliantly captures this emerging culture of arts, ideas, science, and literature of an America in its adolescence, as filtered through the intersecting lives and words of the best and brightest writers of the day. Through this lens, Goodman examines the life of the magazine from its emergence in 1857 through the 1920s.
“Goodman delivers an admirably concise but textured examination of one of the nation’s leading intellectual magazines. . . . Melding textual analyses with biographical and historical background, the author provides something of a microcosmic look at the writing of an astonishing number of literary luminaries who graced the publication’s pages. . . . Highly recommended.”—Choice
