Southern Review

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Southern Review.

front_coverFrom the Literature Online website for the journal:

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 University’s president drove his black Cadillac to Robert Penn Warren’s 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 Review’s 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 Review’s publisher in 2011, allowing the journal to undertake new initiatives, such as reaching readers through a digital version in addition to the print quarterly.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 49 (2013) to present.

En attendant Nadeau

Following the ruptures in September 2015 in the editorial staffing performed by Patricia de Pas in her dramatic restructuring of La Quinzaine littéraire, staff declaring themselves most faithful to its original founder, Maurice Nadeau, have launched a new journal, entitled En attendant Nadeau.

Completely free and open access and online, the journal is formed by the editors Jean Lacoste, Pierre Pachet and Tiphaine Samoyault, as they set out on a new project but fidèles à leur histoire commune autour de Maurice Nadeau. 

The first issue is online now (available in PDF soon) here and will be listed this week in ejournals@cambridge A-Z and next month in iDiscover.
