the complete review Quarterly
Volume II, Issue 2   --   May, 2001

Editorial Notes

       The complete review Quarterly continues to grow in scope, and this issue is the most extensive yet. We begin with an editorial, Withering Reviews, in which we wonder: Where have all the book reviews gone ?.

       There is -- finally ! -- another Literary Saloon dialogue, a lengthy piece In Praise of Slush, trumpeting the call: May a Hundred Million Books Bloom

       The complete review is, of course, where most of the reviewing action is at, but the complete review Quarterly offers space for lengthier considerations of certain titles. In this issue two works are reviewed. Socialist Magical Realism discusses Irmtraud Morgner's East German classic, Trobadora Beatrice. And Love in the Middle Kingdom offers a review of Amélie Nothomb's Loving Sabotage.

       The complete review Quarterly is always willing to consider new ways of looking at literature. In this issue we offer some poetic interludes. Karl Sentnel provides Four Poems, while Ernest d'Urfé lightens the mood with two limerick sequences, Kant and Marcus Aurelius

       We're glad to see you back at the Literary Saloon. Enjoy !
