In this paper I discuss the contribution of the magazine «Neue Rundschau» in disseminating European and modernist literature in the German speaking area. After briefly illustrating the specific idea of 'Moderne' on which the journal’s cultural program was based, I comment on its European breakthrough in the early 1920s with particular attention to its modernist connections, its editorial choices concerning European authors, and the vast network of international journals that amply contributed to the definition of NR’s cultural identity and function. I also propose that, in this timeframe, the magazine’s cultural and literary policy was instrumental in building peace relationships between European countries. Finally, I consider the dramatic rupture brought on by National Socialism, and the ending of the modernist experience.

Abstract

In this paper I discuss the contribution of the magazine «Neue Rundschau» in disseminating European and modernist literature in the German speaking area. After briefly illustrating the specific idea of 'Moderne' on which the journal’s cultural program was based, I comment on its European breakthrough in the early 1920s with particular attention to its modernist connections, its editorial choices concerning European authors, and the vast network of international journals that amply contributed to the definition of NR’s cultural identity and function. I also propose that, in this timeframe, the magazine’s cultural and literary policy was instrumental in building peace relationships between European countries. Finally, I consider the dramatic rupture brought on by National Socialism, and the ending of the modernist experience.
