Harriet Monroe was the founder and editor of Poetry magazine. She founded the magazine in 1912 and it has been in continuous publication for more than 100 years, making it the oldest monthly magazine devoted to verse in the English language. Perhaps most famous for having been the first to publish T.S. Eliot’s "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" (and, later, John Ashbery's "Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror"), Poetry also championed the early works of H.D., Robert Frost, Langston Hughes, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and Marianne Moore. It was first to recognize many poems that are now widely anthologized: "We Real Cool" by Gwendolyn Brooks, Briggflatts by Basil Bunting, "anyone lived in a pretty how town" by E.E. Cummings, "Chez Jane" by Frank O'Hara, "Fever 103°" by Sylvia Plath, "Chicago" by Carl Sandburg, "Sunday Morning" by Wallace Stevens, and many others. Elizabeth Bishop, Charles Bukowski, Raymond Carver, Allen Ginsberg, Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, Gertrude Stein, and Tennessee Williams, to name just a few, have also appeared in Poetry’s pages.

The back of the postcard features a quote by Monroe: “OUR LITTLE SOLOS ARE A NOTE IN AN IMMENSE CHORUS VIBRATING GRANDLY THROUGH THE UNIVERSE, A CHORUS WHICH ACCEPTS AND HARMONIZES THE WHIR OF THE CRICKET AND THE LONG DRUM-ROLL OF THE STARS.”
