Poetry Daily featured book About The Yale Review:
The Yale Review is the nationís oldest literary quarterly. Like Yaleís schools of music, drama, and architecture, like its libraries and art galleries, The Yale Review has helped give the University its leading place in American education. In a land of quick fixes and short view and in a time of increasingly commercial publishing, the journal has an authority that derives from its commitment to bold established writers and promising newcomers, to both challenging literary work and a range of essays and reviews that can explore the connections between academic disciplines and the broader movements in American society, thought, and culture. With independence and boldness, with a concern for issues and ideas, with a respect for the mindís capacity to be surprised by speculation and delighted by elegance, The Yale Review proudly continues into its third century.
