A Big Gift Changes Life at a Little Magazine

The New York Times*), November 17, 2003

SINCE 1912, poets and editors have produced the monthly magazine Poetry on a budget sometimes stretched perilously thin. Recently, its home has been a cramped, borrowed office beside the stacks in a Chicago library.
Over the years, the magazine featured poets who would become among the best known of their times — Ezra Pound, Marianne Moore, Wallace Stevens, William Carlos Williams, T. S. Eliot, Carl Sandburg. The next issue was never a sure thing, but whenever it seemed the money had run out, someone stepped in with a few dollars, enough to keep the magazine’s presses chugging.
All that has changed. The magazine remains, but the financial struggle has vanished
