The Hudson Review celebrates its 65th anniversary next month. One of the most notable and influential American literary quarterlies of the post-World War II era, it was co-founded in 1947 by Princeton graduates Frederick Morgan (Class of 1943), Joseph Bennett (Class of 1943), and William Arrowsmith (Class of 1945). Its archives, comprising 250 linear feet worth of correspondence, manuscripts, proofs, journals, and other materials, are held in Princeton University Library’s Manuscripts Division. Among the numerous prominent authors, critics, intellectuals, and translators represented in the files are Saul Bellow, Isaiah Berlin, Yves Bonnefoy, Kenneth Burke, Hayden Carruth, E. M. Cioren, T. S . Eliot, Robert Fitzgerald, Northrop Frye, Wyndham Lewis, Robert Lowell, Hugh MacDiarmid, Thomas Mann, Marianne Moore, Saint-John Perse, Sylvia Plath, Theodore Roethke, Anne Sexton, Allen Tate, William Carlos Williams, and Yvor Winters.
The Hudson Review is profiled in The Wall Street Journal this week: “The Quarterly Wins the Race” by Pia Catton.
