Max Michelson was closely associated with Harriet Monroe and "Poetry" magazine from 1915 to 1921, until he was interned in a state mental hospital until his death. His work, both verse and prose, mediated between the populist orientation of Sandburg and Masters and the intellectualized European inclination of Pound and Eliot. This study includes a biographical essay which evolves into a historical and critical consideration of him and his work. The body of Michelson's extant verse consists of the 57 published poems. This volume also includes prose, reviews, an essay, and letters from Michelson to Harriet Monroe.
