Georgia Review Books

Georgia Review Books is a collaboration between the UGA Press and its university partner, The Georgia Review. Founded at the University of Georgia in 1947 and published there ever since, the Review is one of America’s most highly regarded journals of arts and letters, with each quarterly issue offering a diverse, thoughtfully orchestrated gathering of short stories, general-interest essays, poems, reviews, and visual art.

 This series will reflect the Review’s strengths, particularly in nonfiction. Books in the series will be a mix of original, single-author works identified and cultivated by the review editorial team, as well as occasional collections of previously published content from the Review that addresses a specific theme or topic. The Georgia Review seeks, in these books as in its issues, to offer up rich content that invites and sustains repeated attention and consideration.

 The first book in this new series will be Judith Kitchen’s What Persists: Selected Essays on Poetry, 19882014, to be published in the spring of 2016. What Persists contains eighteen of the nearly fifty essays on poetry that Kitchen published in The Georgia Review over a twenty-five-year span, during her tenure as an advisory and contributing editor. At its best, What Persists shows—and examines clearly, deeply, and mostly lovingly—the wide range of poetry written in recent decades—by women, men, poets who celebrate their ethnicity, poets who show a fierce individualism, poets whose careers have soared, and promising poets whose work has all but disappeared.
