Books Received (Cultural and Literary Criticism)

16 Feb

the minnesota review welcomes proposals for review essays on these and other recent books in cultural and literary theory. We do not publish reviews of fiction or poetry. For reviews, we much prefer overviews to reports on specific books. For examples, check the review-essays in our current and past issues.
