The names of a few authors we have publishednsince then — Rudyard Kipling, Sinclair Lewis, Stephen Vincent Benet, ThorntonnWilder, John Dos Passos — show that some of our judgments have beennquite timely.nToday, as ever, it is unique talent, not just prominent names, that we seek.nWhen we publish Lewis H. Lapham, or E. H. Gombrich, it is not because onenis the editor of Harper’s and the other a highbrow “name”; what they contributento our pages is unique, and that is the reason for their inclusion. The samenis true of all our authors.nThe Yale Literary Magazine still stands alone.nOur magazine is not published fortnightly on newsprint, to extol thisnweek’s writers, expound on last week’s thinkers, and crumble to dust a weeknthereafter. The paper we print on permits the most accurate color reproductionnof any magazine in the world and is guaranteed to endure for centuries.nAnd we seek to publish and reproduce what will last at least as long.nBut The Yale Literary Magazine is now under attack.nSo boldly, so uncomprisingly have our authors spoken on issues of culturenand politics that the academic tastemakers of the university in whose shadownthe magazine was born have sought to suppress it as a source of intellectualndissent. Their actions, as George Will remarked in a recent 60 Minutesnbroadcast dealing with the controversy, have cast doubt on “the integrity of anmajor American university,” and compelled the magazine to defend its freedomnin court.nOur freedom endures, and The Yale Literary Magazine remains as independent,nas passionate, as controversial as when it first addressed the nation.nIn the words of reviewers, it is “elegantly produced” (The Washington Post)n”in the fine book tradition” (Folio), “sophisticated” (American Spectator),n”impressive” (Los Angeles Times), “highbrow” (Time). “This spendid journal”n(Anthony Harrigan), “strikingly handsome” (Chronicle of Higher Education),n”downright lovely to look at” (James J. Kilpatrick), is also “good,nmean fun” (Los Angeles Times). In short, The Yale Literary Magazine isn”an organ of the intelligent intelligentsia” (Eugene V. Rostow).nJoin us, and see for yourself why “TTie Yale Literary Magazine is one ofnthe few magazines now being published in the United States that attempts anserious encounter with literature, with thought, with ideas.”*nThe Yale Literary JMam^inen•^ CD » Since 1821nThe Yale Literary Magazine is a publication of American Literajy Society, Inc., a non-profit organization. ‘Lewis H.
