Volume III, Issue 2   --   May, 2002

Editorial Notes

       The spring issue of the complete review Quarterly offers another study of reactions to a much-discussed book. In Reactions to Richard Posner's Public Intellectuals we present what threatens to become Another Study in Decline, as we survey the reviews of and commentaries on this much-maligned yet clearly not often closely considered book.

       Borrower Economics is Liu Zhang's Response to Tim Parks' Lender Politics, an article in which Parks suggested that certain books be withheld from public libraries for a period of time after publication. But Parks only shows one side of the coin, and Liu Zhang tries to show the other.

       Nicola Rossi goes about Digging out the Gems in his look at some Lesser-known authors of Italian post-war literature. Guido Morselli, Giorgio Manganelli, and Tommaso Landolfi are too-little known in the English-speaking world, and in his piece he introduces readers to them.

       Finally, we offer Henry James on Middlemarch, reprinting his classic book review of George Eliot's great novel.

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