Harriet Monroe

A copy of the original 1912 issue of  "Poetry " magazine, then called "Poetry : A Magazine of Verse," rests over a photo of founder Harriet Monroe. Born in Chicago in 1860, Monroe was a poet herself. Her magazine introduced readers to new and established poets such as Rupert Brooke and Carl Sandburg and is still vital today.
