Notre Dame Review

The First Ten Years

Edited with an Introduction by John Matthias and William O’Rourke

Since its founding in 1995, Notre Dame Review has become one of America’s leading literary magazines. Dana Gioia, chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, has written, “It really has become one of the most interesting journals in the country.” This anthology consists of representative poetry and fiction from its first ten years of publication. Like the magazine itself, the collection includes work by well known authors—Seamus Heaney, Paul Muldoon, and Czeslaw Milosz among the poets; Marilyn Krysl, Arturo Vivante, Frances Sherwood, R. D. Skillings, and Richard Elman, among the fiction writers—while also making room for exciting work by new and emerging writers, some of whom are former Notre Dame MFA students. The anthology also includes poetry and prose by several winners of the Ernest Sandeen Prize in Poetry and the Richard Sullivan Prize in Short Fiction, works that have set standards of excellence for writers and readers around the country.

Contributors to this anthology represent a wide range of styles and aesthetic orientations. The reader will find in this collection poems and stories that challenge, surprise, comfort, discomfort, and delight—each in its own unique way.

Notre Dame Review is a lively, engaging, unpredictable literary journal.”—Robert Pinsky, author of Gulf Music and former Poet Laureate of the United States

Poetry and fiction from the Notre Dame Review have appeared in Best American Short Stories, Best American Poetry, the Pushcart Prize volumes, and Harper’s Magazine, among many other publications.

“Twice a year, every year, for the past ten, the Notre Dame Review has been publishing a generous array of poetry and fiction. . . . [This] is a capacious collection that attests to the extraordinary vision and, yes, as William Carlos Williams would have said it, enthusiasm, that really good writing can inspire.” — NUVO
