The Paris Review; Issue 25; Spring 1961.

The Paris Review is an English language literary magazine first published in Paris in 1953, which has published the work of many eminent writers. William Styron stated in the first issue that the publication's stated mission was...

"The Paris Review hopes to emphasize creative work—fiction and poetry—not to the exclusion of criticism, but with the aim in mind of merely removing criticism from the dominating place it holds in most literary magazines. […] I think The Paris Review should welcome these people into its pages: the good writers and good poets, the non-drumbeaters and non-axe-grinders. So long as they're good."

Published by The Paris Review (Sadruddin Aga Khan), in Paris in 1961. First edition.

This issue featured work by Jan Gerhard Toonder, Bowden Broadwater, Hughes Rudd, Robert Lowell, Lars Bo, X.J. Kennedy, Lewis Turco, Donald Davie and Daniel Langton.
