A title from KRAUS REPRINT

- Randall Swingler, Jack Lindsay and John Davenport inaugurated ARENA in 1949 in an attempt to collect the best in English and European writing of the day. To quote from the editorial note to the first issue: "(ARENA) aims at separating out and strengthening all that genuinely reveals the artist's prophetic function, his capacity to reach ahead into various aspects of the integration that his world lacks but needs for its advance." Contributors included, Edith Sitwell, Malcolm Lowry, Pablo Neruda, Tristan Tzara, Hugh MacDiarmid, Paul Eluard, Boris Pasternak, Albert Camus, Montagu Slater, W.E.B. du Bois, Elio Vittorini and Angus Wilson.
