ROBERT BUCHANAN AND THE MAGAZINES

 

Much of Robert Buchanan’s work (poetry, essays and novels) first appeared in the numerous literary journals being published at that time, so I thought it might be worthwhile to add these initial reviews to the site. Some essays in particular, ‘The Fleshly School of Poetry’ and ‘The Newest Thing in Journalism’, were more controversial than others and although they are listed here, they are dealt with in more detail elsewhere on the site. There is also a section on Buchanan’s own, short-lived, magazine, Light.
