With contributions by William Carlos Williams, E. E. Cummings, William Faulkner, W. H. Auden, Ezra Pound, Tennessee Williams, and others. The magazine, published on a quarterly basis, ceased publication after the foundation concluded that it had little impact in Europe. The final issue was the sixteenth one, which appeared in July 1956.
