Publisher’s description: Take your rightful place in history and subscribe to the oldest continuously published literary quarterly in America. The University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, is the home of this venerable quarterly, begun in 1892. The Sewanee Review is devoted to American and British fiction, poetry, and reviews, as well as essays in criticism and reminiscence. We invite you to take hold of the direct literary line to Flannery O’Connor, Robert Penn Warren, Hart Crane, Anne Sexton, Harry Crews, and Fred Chappell—not to mention, Andre Dubus and Cormac McCarthy, whose first stories were published in The Sewanee Review. Open this pale blue cover and you might find a chest of jewels or a powder keg. Each issue is a brilliant seminar, an unforgettable dinner party, an all-night swap of stories and passionate stances.
This Spring 2013 issue features poetry by Cally Conan-Davies, Debora Greger, Pamela Gross, Lawrence Kessenich, and David Mason; essays by Adrian Frazier, Henry Hart, David Heddendorf, Mel Livatino, Pamela Royston Macfie, Sam Pickering, Dawn Potter, Fred C. Robinson, Floyd Skloot, and George Watson; and reviews by William E. Engel, Brendan Galvin, William Harmon, Ben Howard, Marc Hudson, Warren Leamon, Clay Lewis, Jerome Mazzaro, Jeffrey Meyers, George Monteiro, George Poe, and Frederick Turner.
Our first issue of 2013 (winter 2013) focuses on the experiences and effects of war. Stories by Michael Beeman, Charles East, and Phillip Parotti join the poetry of Bruce Bond, Stephen Bluestone, Jonathan Greene, Daniel Hoffman, David Moolten, F. D. Reeve, Austin Smith, and Michael Spence. Warner Berthoff writes on Okinawa, Jonathan Bloom on V.S. Pritchett, Sanford Pinsker on Anne Frank, and Kathryn Starbuck on Nazis. New contributor John B. Hench presents an essay on “War Baby, War Books,” and fellow fresh face Jonathan Rose writes on “Churchill at Scribner’s: A Study in Failure.”
In the fall 2012 issue, James L. W. West III, Merritt Moseley, and Scott Donaldson write on editing and publishing, Michael Gorra and Christopher McDonough write on the Library of America and the Loeb Library respectively, and Catharine Savage Brosman, Fred C. Robinson, and Marie Malchodi explore book collecting and rare books. Philip Terzian discusses the peculiarities of the reading life, and W. Brown Patterson writes on the King James Bible. Edwin M Yoder, Jr. writes on reviewing, while reviews by Richard O’Mara, Brooke Horvath, Laura Stevenson, and various other hands join tributes by Elizabeth Moulton and George Watson. Poetry comes from Barry Sternlieb, newcomer Jonathan Greene, and Billy Collins.
