§ 6. The South

The South, with its conservative tastes in literature, has perhaps offered of late the best field for the quarterly. The Southern Quarterly Review, published at Charleston and at Columbia from 1842 to 1857, had distinction of the old-fashioned sort, and contained articles on science, law, philosophy, and literature, and many brief book notices. The Sewanee Review, another quarterly, established in 1892, still continues. Though it is closely connected with the University of the South its contributors are not all local, and it has maintained its dignity and its literary tradition well. The South Atlantic Quarterly, edited at Trinity College, Durham, South Carolina, began publication in 1902, and has also kept to a uniformly high standard.
