Quantity IX, quantity 1
Lapham’s Quarterly embodies the assumption that heritage is the foundation of all schooling, clinical and literary in addition to political and financial. every one factor addresses a subject matter of present curiosity and concern—war, faith, funds, drugs, nature, crime—by citing to the microphone of the current the recommendation and suggestions of the past.
The texts are drawn from authors at the order of Aristotle, William Shakespeare, Leo Tolstoy, Mark Twain, Thucydides, Virginia Woolf, Charles Dickens, Edith Wharton, Edward Gibbon, Mahatma Gandhi, Confucius, Honoré de Balzac, Jane Austen, Jorge Luis Borges, Matsuo Bashō, Henry David Thoreau, and Joan Didion. Abridged instead of paraphrased, not one of the textual content within the Quarterly runs to a size longer than six pages, others not more than six paragraphs. including passages from the world’s nice literature, each one factor bargains full-color reproductions of work and sculpture via the world’s nice artists. The connecting of the then with the now could be extra augmented with the testimony present in the letters, speeches, diaries, and images, in five-act performs and three-part songs.
