Example text

Analysis of the wider nexus of archival material relating to the Intelligencer corroborates the sense that its primary orientation was out towards this wider field, rather than in towards the internal logic of a coterie. Situated in the proper extent of its context, the Intelligencer’s praxis is revealed to be far removed from an elitist disavowal of commercial avenues of publication. In 28 Late Modernism and The English Intelligencer part, the restricted scale of its production was necessary to facilitate the speed of the sheets’ distribution; it also permitted work to be made available in a way that the timescales of other means of publication – even more conventional little magazines – prohibited.

Dissatisfaction with the prevailing institutions and publishing venues was prevalent throughout the exchanges in and around the Intelligencer, and suggests a practical reason why such a publication was deemed necessary: The world of printers gets narrower and more mean-minded all the time; controlled by idiots who wouldn’t know a good piece of writing even if they saw it. It really amazes me how the idea of a live connection between the sources of genuine work and the means of dissemination has almost completely collapsed over here.

Furthermore, the work that could be distributed through the Intelligencer, and this pertained to other little magazines as well, was not subject to any kind of economic rationale in terms of its sales: the Intelligencer printed what it was deemed necessary to print. Although considerable fractures opened up within the Intelligencer community about what precisely it was that constituted necessary work, at its outset it might be understood to mean, simply and loosely, the work that more established publishers would not print.
