The Sewanee Review is America's oldest continuously published literary quarterly. Only erudite work representing depth of knowledge and skill of expression is published here.
"Whatever the new literature turns out to be, it will be the privilege of the Sewanee Review to print its share of it, to comment on it, and to try to understand it."
—Allen Tate, editor of the Sewanee Review in the 1940s
"The Sewanee Review has now reached the status of an institution—by which I mean that if it came to an end, its loss would be something more than merely the loss of one good periodical: it would be a symptom of an alarming decline in the periodical world at its highest level."
—T. S. Eliot
