Did vou write hooks or magazine article*? My first book was called Enjoyment "j Poetry, That had nothing to do wilh politics in particular? \ol at all, and I did give a course in the graduate school at Columbia in aesthetics in which 1 applied psychology to the criticism of literature for the first time, f think. Thc fir.-*t time it had ever been applied? Yes. That is. people in my class gol credit.- in psychology although it was a literary course. Did vour first hook on poetry enjoy <;ood success? Well, it's Mill selling at the rate of ahoul one every two days. It has been reprinted t\\ entv-four times. What is the most popular hook you have written? Over the years that's the mosl popular book. Bul the only bestseller I ever u rote w as called Enjoyment oj Laughter. It's a hook on the psychology of humor which has the humor in it, \t least, that's whal it aimed . . , Whal was the most popular hook you wrote on the political scene or political science, you mighl say? None of them were very popular. The most importanl one is called Marxism: Is if a Science? Thej were extremely influential hooks, though, wen- lhe* nol ? Perhaps if it's true thai influence reall) seeps down from the intellectual. Would you say that influence does seep down in considerable quantit) from ihe intellectual to the public as a whole? I think, decidedl). How ilo you think the mechanism nf this seeping works? The masse- of the people accept their opinions from journals. 'I he editor- of popular journals read more high' brovt magazines and the editors of more highbrow magazines read still more highbrow magazines. I think it's true, as (John) May nar d Keynes says, that any popular movemenl that's being pul across now you'll find it outlined in some didl hook in economics published about seventj years ago. Vnd the besl example of it is Karl Marx. It's a life work to read Karl Marx's Das KapitaL bul that's the hook which has caused all this trouble- Yes. Actually relatively few people have read it. \ ery few. I'd like lo know when. Mr. Eastman, what year you herai""' actively socialistic and became an active Socialist propaga1*' llist? In 1912 I became editor of the old Masses which was a Socialist magazine, and I ihink il was thai same year 1 joined the S(Mia|is| part) - How long were vou editor of the New Masses? Don'l -a\ \rn Masses. I said "old on purpose be- cause it had no relation to the Sew Masses. An entire!) different group ol people founded the Sew Masses. Bul I was editor of the old Masses from 1912 to 1917 when it was suppressed h\ the governmenl for opposing the war. Then I Started another magazine called 7 /■"' Liberator, which I edited until 1022. ll whs al that time. I imagine, lhat you made your trip Russia? I le it The Liberator and I gave up journalism entirel) in \(>'22 and went io Russia. Vou were actively supporting the Bolshevists when they >«,|/( power in Russia in I'M7? Yes.
