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 book 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.
