Introducing The Straddler

A quick heads up: The first issue of The Strad­dler, a new quar­ter­ly online mag­a­zine, has just been launched. If the edi­tors have their way, it will be the “anti-mag­a­zine of our day.” In the first issue, you’ll find:

  • an essay explor­ing the rela­tion­ship between an Emi­ly Dick­in­son poem, the New Testament’s Book of Matthew, the Get­tys­burg Address, and George Bush’s 2007 Memo­r­i­al Day speech.
  • a con­sid­er­a­tion of the Amer­i­can gang­ster film in light of the Amer­i­can eco­nom­ic sys­tem;
  • a med­i­ta­tion on works by Anne Car­son and recent Nobelist Doris Less­ing; and also
  • some orig­i­nal art­work, poet­ry, and fic­tion.

Thanks Elaine for the heads up.
