1 By creating a rapport between the direct experiences of those who suffered and struggled and the writers who came into contact with them, reportage served to link the breadlines to the headlines. Furthermore, because of its peculiar formation the direct rendering of (class) struggle through carefully detailed (individual) analysisreportage also linked the genres of personal narrative and political economy; in so doing, it connected traditionally feminine forms of writing to more conventionally masculine ones.
Moreover, as the dominant literary innovation of the decade, it affected a number of other forms. Thus fiction, poetry, and drama all sought to re-create the immediacy and power offered by the direct testimony of reportage. The claims of history on the literature of the 1930s re-formed the generic boundaries of writing itself. These boundariesbetween classes and genresultimately shaped the gendered narratives of both political and literary history. In "Women on the Breadlines," Meridel LeSueur's first piece of reportage for the New Masses, the writer, an unemployed mother of two, places herself among the "women you don't see": those who are single, out of work, and hungry.
7 The reasons for this are entangled within the political and literary debates generated during the 1930s that have set the tone for most Page 5 subsequent work on the period. As I will demonstrate in the following chapter, most histories of literary radicalism have emphasized the correlation between the shifting political pronouncements of the Communist Party of the United States (CPUSA) and the changes in literary values expressed by Marxist critics. Such a rendering of literary history, besides being profoundly undialectical, is also profoundly gendered.
