Max Forrester Eastman: The Gangster of the Pen

By Lucio Saverio Eastman

Max Forrester Eastman (January 4, 1883 – March 25, 1969) is a name unfamiliar to most people today. Despite having been a prolific writer and journalist, almost his entire body of work is out of print. In particular his mid to late career works are hardly referenced or mentioned in popular culture and media. I have a particular interest in seeing that change. I’d like to introduce to a new audience, and perhaps those already familiar with his legacy, a bit of my distant family history.

Since publication of this article, I built a quotations site after reading a large portion of Max’s writings. You can visit and share Max Eastman quotations on social media here.
