Massachusetts ReviewThe Massachusetts Review was launched well over fifty years ago, quickly establishing itself as a leading independent quarterly journal of literature, the arts, and public affairs.

Edited for the past decade and a half by Comparative Literature faculty members, first by David Lenson, and now by Jim Hicks, the journal publishes poetry and fiction by both established and emerging writers, with a strong emphasis on literature in translation, social and historical commentary, and visual art.

For more information, current and back issues, subscriptions and more about the journal, see The Massachusetts Review website. Along with its quarterly print journal, the magazine features online commentary, stories, and reviews on its blog, as well as an archive of interviews and other podcast features.
