The Egoist (1914)

theegoist-title

Dora Marsden was the editor or co-editor of three journals: The Freewoman (1911 – 1912), The New Freewoman (1913) and The Egoist (1914 – 1918). The Union of Egoists offers the complete contents of every issue of all three journals at no cost.

Dora Marsden in The Egoist: “The im­portance of furthering one’s own interests does not leave sufficient energy really to accord much atten­tion to those of others. It is only when others’ interests thrust themselves obtrudingly across one’s own that indifference vanishes: because they have become possible allies or obstacles. If the latter, the fundamental lack of respect swiftly defines itself. In face of opposition to a genuine interest, its owner respects neither ‘his neighbour’s ox, his ass, his wife, his manservant, his maidservant, nor anything that is his.’ Not even his opinions. One has only to think what jolly old proselytisers the world’s ‘great’ men have been to realise what ‘respect’ they have for their neighbour’s interests.”

Like The Freewoman and The New Freewoman, The Egoist had a difficult life. It struggled on for six years surrounded by conflict and rumour of imminent collapse. It enjoyed a readership numbered in hundreds rather than thousands and survived only because of the astounding personal generosity of Harriet Shaw Weaver. When the end did come, in 1919, it was unnoticed except by a handful of devotees. However, The Egoist’s importance is great in terms of its contribution to the progress of modern literature and especially in understanding the development of Dora Marsden’s life and writing. The Egoist not only furthered the careers of Pound, Aldington, H. D. and others but provided a vital outlet for the work of the controversial writer, James Joyce.

– Les Garner: A Brave and Beautiful Spirit / Dora Marsden, 1882-1960 (1990)
