New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Southern Review.
“The Southern Review is one of the nation’s premiere literary journals. Hailed by Time as “superior to any other journal in the English language,” we have made literary history since our founding in 1935. We publish a diverse array of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry by the country’s—and the world’s—most respected contemporary writers.
“Established at Louisiana State University, The Southern Review immediately became a literary tastemaker. The launch of The Southern Review came about “On a bright Sunday afternoon in late February, 1935,” when Louisiana State Universitys president drove his black Cadillac to Robert Penn Warrens house in Baton Rouge to invite him, his wife, and their friend Albert Erskine on a drive to discuss creating a magazine of “distinctive character and quality.” Cleanth Brooks and Charles W. Pipkin were consulted; both joined the editorial staff. The Southern Reviews first series ran 1935 to 1942 before closing due to the war. In 1965, the journal was revived under the editorship of Lewis P. Simpson and Donald E. Stanford, who launched the second series to great acclaim. LSU Press became The Southern Reviews publisher in 2011, allowing the journal to undertake new initiatives, such as reaching readers through a digital version in addition to the print quarterly.”
