“The writers in Evergreen are all the only speakers of their language. What happens when you gather independent thinkers and give a home to the wayward is that you produce joy. You produce a template for freedom and the comforts of unease.” — Laurie Stone


Started in 1957 by the famed publisher Barney Rosset, who saw Evergreen as a way to promote the authors of Grove Press, the magazine became something much more--the heart of the Beat Generation.


“From 1957 to 1973, The Evergreen Review landed every other month in mailboxes like a bomb, busting long-held ideas about literature, decency, and taste. It was a magazine that allowed many Americans to discover for the first time work by the likes of Samuel Beckett, Bertolt Brecht, William S. Burroughs, Jean-Paul Sartre, and other figures of the post World War II literary avant-garde. . . . At a time when college kids prefer Snapchat to short stories, and 'anything goes' has been going on for seemingly forever, the legendary magazine is being relaunched this week.”

—David Freedlander, The Daily Beast, March 1, 2017
