Alfred Kazin’s Journals in the American Scholar

The new, Winter 2011 issue of the American Scholar has a selection of entries from our forthcoming Alfred Kazin's Journals: Richard M. Cookbook Alfred Kazin’s Journals, edited by Richard M. Cook. As a prominent public intellectual, Kazin’s circle of influence in postwar America was formidable.   The letters excerpted in the American Scholar include Kazin’s thoughts on meetings with writers such as T.S. Eliot, Isaiah Berlin, Hannah Arendt, Ralph Ellison, and Harold Bloom.

Get started on the letters and be sure to check out Cook’s biography, Alfred Kazin: A Biography: Richard Cook Alfred Kazin before the May publication of the journals.
