Antaeus magazine’s “Neglected Books of the 20th Century”


Beginning its Summer, 1975 issue, Antaeus, a literary magazine edited by Daniel Halpern, published an intermittent series titled, “Neglected Books of the Twentieth Century,” in which a variety of poets, fiction writers, and publishers nominated titles they considered neglected.

This series eventually led Halpern to reissued a number of titles suggested here and elsewhere under his book publishing company, Ecco Press. A list of the titles released in Ecco’s “Neglected Classics” series can be found under “Sources” to the right.
