New Issue of NER Includes Previously Unpublished Essay by Hannah Arendt

July 11, 2017

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. – New England Review’s (NER) latest issue presents a never-before-published essay by author and political theorist Hannah Arendt about the failure of revolutions to make societies free. An essay by Clarence Orsi examines the impossibility of stepping outside of gender, and Ben Miller’s “essay enacted” presents the lilac in mythology, botany, history, and his own backyard.

Selections of new fiction and poetry include longtime NER contributors Steve Almond and Castle Freeman Jr., NER Bread Loaf Scholar Hai-Dang Phan, and new poet Cheswayo Mphanza ’16. In addition, a long poem by Gjertrud Schackenberg, “Afghan Girl,” pays tribute to Steve McCurry's iconic photograph of Sharbat Gula. 

Samples of this new issue and interviews with select authors can be found on the NER website. 

Published by Middlebury College, New England Review is a nationally recognized literary journal that cultivates artistic excellence and innovation in contemporary writing and engages readers deeply in the literary arts through its quarterly publication, dynamic web presence, and public reading series.
