Last week, the managing editor at North Dakota Quarterly mentioned that a few folks were inquiring about whether they could pull together a selection of the articles and special editions on Hemingway published by NDQ over the past 30 years. It so happens that Robert W. Lewis, the long-time editor of the Quarterly, was a Hemingway expert, and under his leadership, NDQ became a leading outlet for scholars of Hemingway. We could imagine an online, edited “volume” that made the most significant contributions to NDQ available to a wider audience and with a new introduction and some editorial comments from experts on Hemingway and Lewis’s work.
Fortunately, by releasing most of the NDQ to the world under an open license, folks are free to do with it what they please. At the same time, we’re happy enough to lend a hand and to make the more significant contributions to the journal accessible to as wide an audience as possible.
So go and check out North Dakota Quarterly’s contributions to our reading of Ernest Hemingway.
And while you’re at it, check out the publications of poet and essayist Tom McGrath as well. This year is the centennial of his birth and NDQ will celebrate him with a volume dedicated to his legacy.
