The Hudson Review - Summer 2003

Don’t let the unapologetic academic tone of the Hudson Review scare you off. The long essays, which take up the bulk of the journal and at first may seem daunting, are fascinating, particularly the essay on Darwinism in the Humanities by Harold Fromm and another on Madame Pompadour by Tess Lewis. Of course, if you’re interested in learning more about the relationship between the Western frontier mentality and the Salem Witch Trials or about the intricate corruptions in the Catholic Church, this issue will be right up your alley. The reviews are lively and informative, as usual, and include descriptions of works of theater, film, and music, which is somewhat unusual, but welcome, in a literary magazine. The poetry in this issue has a characteristic stateliness about it, and there are many examples of tightly-controlled formalist verse. [The Hudson Review, 684 Park Avenue, New York, NY, 10021.
