Freshmen Found Poetry Magazine
A new poetry quarterly, The island, has been founded by two Harvard freshman.
John Plotz '69, and Robert B. Shaw '69, who started the magazine, said yesterday that each issue will contain poetry and an interview with a well-known poet or author. Book reviews and short prose pieces might be included in the future, they said.
The first issue, which appeared this week, contains an interview with William Alfred, professor of English, and author of the play "Hogan's Goat."
The publication "is patterned on the small, mimeographed literary magazines which abound at Columbia," according to Plotz.
Shaw said that the magazine will provide "more diverse opportunities for the young poet than present Harvard publications."
