Winter 2001 Cover

MQR 40:1 | Winter 2001

In this special issue of 292 pages, including a full-color portfolio of artwork, MQR sponsors an in-depth examination of how places—those we live in, those we visit, and those we dream about—affect our imaginations, and how we in turn make a home for ourselves in them, or stigmatize them as unworthy of our best values. Scholarly and personal essays focus on discrete places; fiction, poetry, and book reviews enhance the issue’s range and depth.

Summer 200 Cover

Summer 2000

This issue is dominated by a symposium of some thirty writers from different fields responding to a question about the most memorable secret space of their own childhoods. Their mini-essays are not only descriptive but analytical, as they reflect on the state of childhood itself, in personal experiences, in texts, in modern culture. Ranging from a long paragraph to several pages, these commentaries provide an iconography of the state of childhood that will interest scholars of the field as well as general readers.
