Poetry, published in Chicago, Illinois, is one of the leading monthly poetry journals in the English-speaking world.

The magazine was founded in 1912 by Harriet Monroe, who was working as an art critic of the Chicago Tribune. Contributors include T. S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Marianne Moore, Charlotte Wilder, Wallace Stevens, H. D., William Carlos Williams, Basil Bunting, Carl Rakosi, Dorothy Richardson, Peter Viereck, Louis Zukofsky, Charles Reznikoff and Carl Sandburg, among others. The magazine was instrumental in launching the Imagist and Objectivist poetic movements.

"The Open Door will be the policy of this magazine—may the great poet we are looking for never find it shut, or half-shut, against his ample genius! To this end the editors hope to keep free from entangling alliances with any single class or school. They desire to print the best English verse which is being written today, regardless of where, by whom, or under what theory of art it is written. Nor will the magazine promise to limit its editorial comments to one set of opinions." — Harriet Monroe, 1912

In 2003, the magazine received a grant from the estate of Ruth Lilly originally said to be worth over $100,000,000, adding to her already substantial prior contributions. The magazine has set up a foundation to disburse funds from this grant.
