The Southern Review is a literary quarterly first created in 1935 by Robert Penn Warren and Cleanth Brooks at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. The original magazine published such notables as Mark Van Doren, T.S. Eliot, Herberg Agar, W.H. Auden, Wallace Stevens, John Crowe Ransom, Aldous Huxley, Katherine Anne Porter, Ford Madox Ford, Thomas Hary, Kenneth Burke, and Caroline Gordon. The magazine came to a halt during World War II because of funding. After the war, however, Lewis P. Simpson and Donald E. Stanford revived The Southern Review. Since then the magazine has published many leading writers, including Toni Morrison, Flannery O‘Connor, Randall Jarrell, Eudora Welty, Peter Taylor, Rick Bass, Julianna Baggot, Claudia Emerson, Bob Hicok, Philip Levine, Jennifer Grotz, Christine Garren, Lucy Corbin and David Kirby.
