Selections from our Summer 2019 issue…

Automated Vistas (I)
Eugene McCarraher

While the dream of liberation from work has persisted from antiquity into our own time, few people believed, until recently, that its fulfillment could take place in history.

Two Poems
Stephanie Burt
Snub-nosed, hot-tiled, squared-off and four-eyed,
the best we could do for a while,

The Myth of the Native Language
Gabriel Josipovici
"I always think that one of the purest emotions is that of the banished man pining after the land of his birth. . ."
So writes Sebastian Knight, the eponymous hero of Vladimir Nabokov's The Real Life of Sebastian Knight, articulating the classic view of the exile's nostalgia for his homeland even as he punctures its sentimentality.

John Ashbery, the Poet of Our Clime
Arthur Krystal
