It was not until Charles Henri Ford’s View came along that America had its own avant-garde literary and art magazine. —Paul Bowles

View magazine was edited by a surrealist poet from Mississippi. Bowles, along with such writers and artists as Marcel Duchamp, Aaron Copland, and Wallace Stevens, filled its pages. While only lasting for seven years, Ford’s “little magazine” paved the way for Surrealism in America.
