New England Review Offers Special Supplement on Films of Terrence Malick

June 14, 2018


MIDDLEBURY, Vt. – 
New England Review (NER) continues its 40th anniversary year with the publication of a feature on film director, screenwriter, and producer Terrence Malick that offers 11 takes on nine films, from Badlands (1973) to Song to Song (2017), with contributions by writers Maud Casey, Jennifer Chang, Skip Horack, and A. Van Jordan among others.

Nonfiction offerings include scenes of the rural South from the early life of Middlebury’s former Alexander Twilight Artist-in-Residence François Scarborough Clemmons; an essay encompassing the history and culture of public baths from the Romans to the YMCA; and a meditation on surrealism and travel by India Hixon Radfar ’90. 

Also in these pages is new work from 15 poets, including Dilruba Ahmed, Heather Christle, and Garrett Hongo, and fiction from longtime NER contributor Castle Freeman Jr., debut author Chandra Graham Garcia, and more. Three short fictions by contemporary Russian author Alla Gorbunova, a poem from the French by Sylvie Durbec, and a little-known essay by Thomas Mann about an early morning walk with his dog all appear here in English translations.

This month NER also began its “From the Vault” series, which offers selected works from the archive on the NER website, introduced by past editors and staff.

On June 9 the magazine presented its ninth annual reading at Middlebury College’s Reunion, featuring alumni Salena Casha 13, Laura Irei 13, Peter Knobler 68, and J. T. Price 01, along with Professor Emeritus Michael R. Katz. More events will take place in the fall. 

Samples of the new issue and more information about the magazine and events 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.
