Evergreen Review Reader: 1957-1966


Evergreen Review Reader: 1957-1966 Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This selection from the first ten years of the Evergreen Review gives the full flavor of the energy, savvy, excitement, and gall that characterized the magazine during the days of its publication. It also happens to bring together some of the worlds best writers in one volume, in the company of their peers. Evergreen was more than another literary magazine. Founded by Barney Rossett of Grove Press and publishing from 1957 through 1973 (it now exists as an online only magazine), it was the voice of a movement that helped to change the attitudes and prejudices of the culture at large through the language of art—and succeeded. It was always damn the torpedoes and full speed ahead. Here are original short stories by Samuel Beckett and Jack Kerouac (with his “October in the Railroad Earth” predating the publication of On the Road); Allen Ginsbergs “Howl” (previously published only as a pamphlet); a selection from Lawrence Ferlinghettis A Coney Island of the Mind; and a passage from Alexander Trocchis Cains Book. Also included are a fantastic sample of the original and iconic magazine covers which were works of art themselves—a heavily bearded Ginsberg cavorting in a sport coat and Uncle Sam top hat in 1966—and several reprinted comic strips; notably, Michael ODonoghues “The Adventure of Phoebe Zeit-geist.”


Beckett, Kerouac, Ginsberg and more return in the classic pages of Evergreen Review!

About the Author

Barney Rosset is the former owner of Grove Press, and publisher and editor-in-chief of the now online edition of Evergreen Review. He led a successful legal battle to publish the uncensored version of D. H. Lawrence's novel Lady Chatterley's Lover, and later was the American publisher of Henry Miller's controversial novel Tropic of Cancer. The right to publish and distribute Miller's novel in the United States was affirmed by the Supreme Court of the United States in 1964, in a landmark ruling for free speech and the First Amendment. He lives in Manhattan.
