Encyclopedia > Atlantic Monthly

The Atlantic Monthly (also known as The Atlantic) is an American literary/cultural magazine that was founded in November 1857. A monthly publication, the magazine features articles in the fields of political science and foreign affairs, as well as book reviews and short stories.

The Atlantic Monthly was the first to publish Julia Ward Howe's "Battle Hymn of the Republic" (on February 1, 1862), and William Parker's the Freedman's Story (in February and March, 1866). It has also published many of the works of Mark Twain, including one that managed to escape publication until 2001.

The magazine has also published speculative articles that inspired the development of whole new technologies. The classic example is the publication of Vannevar Bush's essay "As We May Think" in July 1945, which inspired Ted Nelson and Douglas Engelbart to develop hypertext technology.
