The correct answer to this question is Harriet Monroe. She is one of the most important figures from the 20th-century poetry renaissance. The magazine was first launched in September of 1912. It was able to be launched with Monroe convincing 100 Chicago business leaders to sponsor the publication.

Their commitment was fifty dollars for a five-year subscription, which allowed Monroe to raise $5000 for the magazine. The amount Monroe raised allowed the contributors to the magazine to be compensated, while she worked with no salary. The magazine grew in popularity when contributors began to win awards, such as the Nobel Prize.

Harriet Monroe was the first editor of Poetry Magazine. He was born on December 23 1860. She was an American editor, literary critic, poet, and a scholar. She is widely acclaimed and popular for being the first editor of the Poetry Magazine. She had a very important role to play in the development of the modern poetry.

This is because she stayed as a long-time correspondent of the poets whom she was in support of. Her letters were full of the thoughts of other poets and their motives. She has written a couple of notable poems that include I Love My Life.
