The Egoist:
An Individualist Review
Marsden, Dora (editor)
Weaver, Harriet Shaw (editor)
London: The New Freewoman, Ltd., 1914-01 / 1919-12

With Harriet Weaver becoming editor (as well as financial backer) and Dora Marsden shifting to "Contributing Editor," The Egoist became one of the major magazines of modernism, publishing, as serials, James Joyce's first novel, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, and Wyndham Lewis's novel Tarr, along with important poetry and criticism by Ezra Pound and T. S. Eliot, with Eliot serving ultimately as its Literary Editor, publishing his own "Tradition and the Individual Talent," and Marsden offering an important series on "The Science of Signs," which anticipated in certain ways later semiotic and deconstructive views of language.
