World Through a Monocle: “The New Yorker” at Midcentury
Mary F. Corey. At midcentury, The New Yorker (TNY) mag. occupied an unsurpassed niche of cultural authority, wielding a power without precedent in the mag. market. In this period a small but influential community of readers relied on TNY as a guide to the emerging post-war world. Here Corey mines the magazine’s mix of journalism, fiction, ads, cartoons, & poetry to unearth a kind of New Yorker Village -- a locale of contradiction & delight, of self-importance & social justice. She exposes a mag. with blind spots in regard to women & to racial & ethnic stereotyping, but which nevertheless strove towards liberal ideals, publishing the work of Rachel Carson, John Hersey, Hannah Arendt, & others. “TNY cultivated a powerful cultural institution.”
