The Yale Review Jan 2020 Cover
  • At The Yale Review, we aim to engage diverse minds, experiences, and points of view in enduring conversations and exceptional writing—to “keep the road open” as former editor Wilbur Cross once wrote, “for candid statements of different standpoints from writers of exceptional ability.” A pre-eminent journal of literature and ideas, The Yale Review has been around in one for mand another since 1819; in its modern embodiment, it published writers such as Thomas Mann, Virginia Woolf, José Ortega y Gasset, Stanley Cavell, Robert Lowell, John Hersey, Bayard Rustin, Adrienne Rich, James Merrill, and Rita Dove. Today, under the editorship of writer and critic Meghan O’Rourke, the Review is ambitiously reimagining itself for the 21st century, with a new website, forthcoming podcasts, and an event series at Yale University and at large.
