Publisher’s description: Founded in 1948, The Hudson Review deals with diverse aspects of American culture and explores arts internationally with reports from abroad and translations of contemporary writers. It has no university affiliation and is not committed to any narrow academic aim or to any particular political perspective. The magazine serves as a major forum for the work of new writers and for the exploration of new developments in literature and the arts. By consistently maintaining its critical standards and commitment to excellent writing, The Hudson Review has made a significant impact on the international literary climate. Each issue contains a wide range of material including: poetry, fiction, essays on literary and cultural topics, book reviews, and chronicles covering film, theatre, dance, music and art. Recently published are an anthology, Writes of Passage: Coming of Age Stories and Memoirs from The Hudson Review, and an all-translation issue, Winter 2009.
