The Modernist Journals Project

Anyone interested in Modernism should head over to Brown University library's Modernist Journals Project homepage. They have scanned and made easily viewable the complete contents of a large number of artistic and cultural "little magazines" of the Modernist era, some of which are synonymous with English-language Modernism (Blast, The Little Review, Poetry, The Egoist, The Seven Arts, etc.). Also included are the complete contents of every issue of Scribners Magazine from 1910-1922, the W. E. B. Du Bois-edited NAACP magazine The Crisis from 1910-1922, the legendary radical leftist magazine The Masses from 1911, and much more. I've only scratched the surface of this collection, and it looks like an amazing time capsule of the era of High Modernism.
