Michael Monahan and His Little Know Little Magazine

Herbert F. Smith


Smith makes the case for the importance of a literary magazine that Michael Monahan (1865-1933) published in the early part of the twentieth century.  It had two titles, first "The Papyrus" and then "The Phoenix." The Library has most of the sporatic run. Its contributors included Guy de Maupassant, Lafcadio Hearn, and Benjamin de Casseres, Gorky and Andreyev, Heinrich Heine, the Syrian poet Ameen Rihani, André Gide, Theofile Gautier, Alphonse Daudet, Anatole France, Charles Baudelaire, Jack London, George Bernard Shaw, Swinburne, W. E. Henley, Galsworthy, A. E. Housman, and Richard Le Gallienne.
