Edited individually or collectively, at various times, by Benjamin Ford, William Arrowsmith, Frederick Morgan, Barbara Howes, Carlos Baker, Philip Wheelwright, et al. A brilliant little magazine, including contributions by Jarrell, Burke, Lorca, Tate, Berryman, Blackmur, Stevens, Eberhart, Lowell, Auden, Goodman, Patchen, Moss, Neruda, Kees, Fowlie, Comfort, Henry Miller, Deming, Durrell, Sartre, Yourcenar, and many others, with a special issue devoted to Myth.
