The New Masses was an American Marxist magazine associated with the American Communist party at the time of the Bolshevik Revolution, and later during the Great Depression, at which time it was to gain more influence because of the receptiveness of the American people to ideas from the political Left. Due to this influence on intellectual circle it has been called the principal organ of the cultural Left in America from 1926 onwards.
