KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a selection of the best stories, poems and articles that have appeared in The Chicago Review during the past eleven years. Founded in 1946, edited by the students at the University of Chicago, the expressed aim of the Review was to ""foster and cultivate the talent of the unknown writer"" although this aim did not exclude the more widely known names. Among the articles are those by David Riesman on The College Student in an Age of Organization in which he suggests that there is a silent revolution against work even among people who can freely choose their own labor; Henry Miller's report of the demise of American literature in Literature as a Dead Duck; Lawrence Lipton's defense of Nelson Algren in A Voyeur's View of the Wild Side. Walter Ballenger, George Starbuck, Walter Toman, Mark Van Doren are represented in Stories, and Poetry offers Conrad Aiken, cummings, Reuel Denney, John Logan, Karl Shapiro, William Carlos Williams. There is a one-act play by Michel De Ghelderode and a rather miscellaneous section labeled Diary and Satire. A varied offering, of interest to the student of modern writing.
