Elbert Hubbard's the Philistine, a Periodical of Protest (1895-1915): A Major American "little Magazine"
The Philistine: A Periodical of Protest (1895-1915), the most successful of the American "little magazines," was published monthly by the flamboyant businessman and radical, Elbert Hubbard. His magazine printed controversial poetry (including many of Stephen Crane's "lines" for the first time) and progressive essays attacking militarism, the clergy and church dogma, and orthodox thought in general. Among other writers represented in The Philistine were George Ade, Claude Fayette Bragdon, Rudyard Kipling, Leo Tolstoy, and Eugene R. White. Hubbard's acerbic observations over two decades regarding the establishment and the leading figures and periodicals of his time make his magazine valuable as primary source material for literary and cultural historians of his period. The author examines the founding of The Philistine, the literary and journalistic contributions by Crane and others, and the influence of Hubbard and his magazine. Included are a listing of contributors and an index to the second decade of The Philistine.
