  • Literary Studies (20th Century onwards)


Quick Reference


literary quarterly published by the University of the South, Sewanee, Tenn.; founded by William Peterfield Trent (1862–1932) while he was a professor of English there (1888–1900). It is now the oldest critical and literary quarterly in the U.S. and, though academic in outlook, is not a university organ. Its contributors are mainly Southerners, and it devotes much attention to the reinterpretation of the role of the South in U.S. culture. Beginning with Allen Tate's editorship (1944–46) it has laid more emphasis on modern literature. Andrew Lytle was the editor (1961–73).
