Our June 2017 issue is now available.

Editor Jonathan Chu opens the issue with this allusion to the past: “WHEN Samuel Eliot Morison announced the inaugural issue of The New England Quarterly, he envisioned a place where wide ranging inquiries into New England’s history and literature were justifiable subjects “for the generous minded investigator.” I think Morison would have approved of our selection of these essays for this, the last issue of our second year with the Quarterly.”
