About the Journal
Founded in 1921, The Dalhousie Review is one of the oldest and most prestigious literary journals in Atlantic Canada. During the early years it featured scholarly essays by notable political thinkers, historians, and literary scholars, including Archibald MacMechan, Sir Robert Borden, Eliza Ritchie, E. J. Pratt, Douglas Bush, Charles G. D. Roberts, Frederick Philip Grove, Hugh MacLennan, Hilda Neatby, Eugene Forsey, Thomas Raddall, and Earle Birney. In the latter half of the twentieth century it also featured short fiction and poetry by notable authors, including Norman Ward, George Woodcock, Mavor Moore, Owen Barfield, Miriam Waddington, Alden Nowlan, Malcolm Lowry, Chinua Achebe, Nadine Gordimer, Margaret Atwood, and Guy Vanderhaeghe. Over the course of the past century, The Dalhousie Review has thus developed an international reputation for publishing consistently high-quality work by established and emerging writers in Canada and around the world.
