"The ideal of the magazine, in the words of Harold Vinal, its editor, 'has been to give space to the new poets who need a hearing.' Both in its poetry and in many of its critical statements, Voices gives a strong impression of its interest in and insistence upon the 'subjective source and quality' of poetry. There is much alarmed ado over the 'surrender' of some modern poetry to the harsh realities of 'the modern distemper.' Voices wishes to preserve poetry or to rescue it from the danger of modern attack upon its sensibilities: 'A poem is always to a greater or less degree a subjective matter, and complete objectivity in poetry is as unattainable as it is in philosophy or mathematics which strive to be the most objective of the sciences.'"--Cf. Hoffman.
