美国文学刊物《新文学》简介

           New Letters

     In the winter of 1934, the small, private University of Kansas City began publishing The University Review.  The name was changed in 1944 to The University of Kansas City Review.  With the Spring issue in 1938, the late Alexander P. Cappon became its editor.  He remained editor of The Review for the next 33 years.  During that time, America fought three wars and inaugurated six presidents, we entered the Atomic Age and watched a man walk on the moon, the University became part of the big University of Missouri system and many of today's authors were born.  But The Review's high standards and stated mission didn't change. 

      1934年冬,小小的肯萨斯大学创办了《大学评论》,1944年更名为《肯萨斯大学评论》,从1938年起,亚历山大·坎朋Alexander P. Cappon任该刊的主编33年。期间,美国经历了三次战争,更换过六届总统。人类进入了“原子时代”,看到了人类在月球漫步。肯萨斯大学也成了庞大的密苏里大学的一部分,今天的好多作家也在期间诞生了。但《肯萨斯大学评论》的高标准以及使命没有变。

        On its first masthead, the editors announced that they hoped "to reflect the cultural life of this section of the United States by providing a medium for the publication of the finest writing obtainable here."  They welcomed all manuscripts, "the sole test of acceptance being that of literary quality.

      在首期的刊头语中,其编辑宣言是:“通过提供媒介,刊发最好的作品以折射美国这一地区的文化生活。”他们欢迎来稿,“选稿的惟一标准是质量。”

     "By the end of its second year, The Review had published a discussion on "Art and Social Struggle" between Thomas Hart Benton and Diego Rivera, a story by Vance Randolph, a poem by Edgar Lee Masters and a personal note by Pearl S. Buck.  Under Dr. Cappon’s editorship it would go on to publish May Sarton, J.D. Salinger, e.e. cummings, Marianne Moore, May Swenson, James T. Farrell, Kenneth Rexroth and many more writers who were already well-known or just becoming so. 

      杂志创刊的第二年底,该刊以本滕Thomas Hart Benton 和瑞威拉Diego Rivera 之间的争鸣 “艺术与社会斗争”为话题,刊发了拉多甫Vance Randolph的一篇小说,马斯特斯Edgar Lee Masters的一首诗和赛珍珠(Pearl S. Buck)的亲笔短信。在亚历山大·坎朋任主编期间,该刊曾刊登过萨顿May Sarton, 塞林格J.D. Salinger,肯名斯e.e. cummings, 莫尔Marianne Moore, 斯文森May Swenson, 法雷尔James T. Farrell, 雷克诺斯Kenneth Rexroth 和诸多已成名或走向名家的作家的作品。

     In 1971, The Review got a new editor, David Ray, and a new name—New Letters.  Mr. Ray's first issues contained work by Robert Bly, Cyrus Colter, Anselm Hollo, Joyce Carol Oates, Richard Hugo and Josephine Jacobsen.  In 1972, he devoted an issue to previously unpublished work by and about Richard Wright.  Over the years, special issues included one devoted to Jack Conroy and one introducing new work from India. 

    1971年,该刊迎来了一位新主编大卫·瑞David Ray,和一个新刊名《新文学》。大卫·瑞 任主编的首期就刊发了罗伯特·勃莱Robert Bly, 考尔特Cyrus Colter, 赫罗Anselm Hollo, 奥茨Joyce Carol Oates, 理查德·雨果Richard Hugo 雅各布森Josephine Jacobsen等名家的作品。

 

     In 1977, David Ray and his wife, Judy, began the audio literature program New Letters on the Air, a half-hour radio program featuring writers reading from and talking about their work   For many years, Rebekah Presson produced and hosted each show, a task taken in 1996 by Angela Elam.  The program now stands as the longest continuously-running broadcast of a national literary radio series, with more than 1,200 programs by many of the world’s most prominent writers.   

1977年,大卫·瑞和妻子朱迪Judy创办了“新文学半小时”广播节目,节目特色是由作家本人朗诵和谈论自己的作品。该节目现在依旧是全美经久不衰、历时最久的文学广播系列节目。其1200多个节目大多为全世界最有名的作家。

 

     In 1986, James McKinley took over as editor of New Letters.  The magazine continued the tradition of attracting new writing by well-known writers—Amiri Baraka, Thomas Berger, former President Jimmy Carter, Annie Dillard, Tess Gallagher, William Gass, Charles Simic, John Updike, Miller Williams and so many others—and lesser known authors, some whose first published work appears in New Letters.  

   1986年,詹姆斯·麦克雷James McKinley继任该刊主编。杂志沿袭其吸引新作品和名家的传统。刊发过巴拉卡Amiri Baraka, 博杰Thomas Berger, 美国前总统吉米·卡特 Jimmy Carter, 迪拉达Annie Dillard, 格拉夫Tess Gallagher, 威廉·伽斯William Gass, 查尔斯·西米克Charles Simic, 约翰·厄普代克John Updike, 威廉姆斯Miller Williams 等名家的作品。一些还名不见传的作家的处女作也是在《新文学》发表。

 

     The first New Letters Literary Awards competition was held in 1986.  Its purpose was to discover, encourage, reward, and publish fresh, new writing.  The first year 1,600 entries arrived from all around the country and the world, from both established and emerging writers.  Today the contest has become a model for others of its kind sponsored by various literary organizations and remains one of the most important.   

《新文学》文学大赛奖于1986年设立。其目的是:发现、鼓励、嘉奖和推出新人新作。大奖赛设立的当年1600名参赛者来自世界各地。迄今为止,该大赛已成为各种文学组织资助的文学大赛典范,也是美国最重要的文学大赛之一。

 

     When James McKinley retired in September of 2002, Robert Stewart took over the post of editor-in-chief for New Letters, New Letters on the Air, and their affiliate, BkMk Press.  Stewart worked as managing editor under both David Ray and James McKinley, and played a central role in design, typography, and art; and he has had a long-running voice in the poetry selections in the magazine.  Since Stewart became editor, the magazine has published such writers as Brian Doyle, Quincy Troupe, Daniel Woodrell, Sherman Alexie, Marilyn Hacker, Maxine Kumin and Charlotte Holmes.

 詹姆斯·麦克雷20029月退休后,罗伯特·斯图亚特Robert Stewart成为该刊的主编。罗伯特·斯图亚特在大卫·瑞和詹姆斯·麦克雷任主编时,就在该刊担任编辑,主要从事设计、艺术装帧和印刷。也是该刊的诗歌编辑。任主编后,他曾刊发过道依乐Brian Doyle, 昆西·超佩Quincy Troupe, 丹尼尔·伍德瑞尔Daniel Woodrell, 阿列克西Sherman Alexie, 汉克尔Marilyn Hacker,昆明Maxine Kumin 和霍姆斯 Charlotte Holmes等名家的作品。

 

     New Letters will continue to seek the best new writing, whether from established writers or from those just ready to be discovered

     《新文学》的宗旨是继续寻觅最佳作品,不论是来自文坛宿将或是期待发现的新秀。
