The mid-century explosion of articles about and reproductions of T.S. Eliot’s work in the pages of big magazines like Time and Life repatriates modernism, especially Eliot's The Waste Land, as the cultural arm of Cold War American nationalism. Thus, at the same time that modernism saturates American popular culture, mass-market magazines reimagine themselves as modernist texts.

Keywords:   T.S. Eliot, The American Century, Cold War, Modernism, Time magazine, nationalism
