About

This journal grew organically out of our common interest, education, and tradition, but more significantly, it came about because we had a common need to write authentic literature together. While fiction remains a thriving business in the United States, literature as a genuine species of art is a rare treasure not easily found today. Much of contemporary literature falls short of its aim, or it aims at the wrong end entirely. Poetry should aspire to more than mere self-expression, a novel more than cheap entertainment. Sentimentality and social commentary are no replacement for Western culture and the Western literary tradition. True literature cannot exist outside of this tradition, for each new work assimilates itself to the works of the past, and will in turn be assimilated by those still to come. We aim to continue this tradition not just by exploring the process of making genuine works of literary art, but also by critically examining other works of authentic literature and placing them, as best we can, within the tradition. We accomplish the first through our attempt at poesis, and the second through our translations, essays, and book reviews.
