Oregon literary magazine published between 1923 and 1929, whose concern for 'higher standards' stemmed from Hofer's disapproval of the modernism influencing American literature in the 1920s, a tendency that he felt was especially concentrated in universities and colleges and in the Northeast. Ernest Hofer condemned 'free verse' and 'formless poetry', clinging to 'the literary sensibilities of the Victorian era, steeped in gentility and romanticism,' and rejected poems and fiction that dealt with darker themes. Asserting a 'western right for clean art,' The Lariat gave preference to 'sweet readable songs that leave a good taste in the mouth and sweet music jingling in the hearts of readers'.
