Letters to the Editor: Sept. 2009

The Vienna Review welcomes letters from its readers.

To the Editor,

I really admire the Vienna Review, which came to my attention recently; congratulations on making something important and fine. The writers are of an amazingly high caliber, and the scope of the coverage is impressive. The layout is clean, and the reproduction terrific, especially for newsprint. In the European tradition, I might suggest a more daring use of photography, but that’s my only quibble.

To the Editor,

When I first came to Vienna this spring as a Milena Jesenska Fellow at the Institut für die Wissenschaften vom Menschen, my first thought was: I must get my hands on all back issues of The Vienna Review. As a longtime romantic about English-language papers in foreign capitals, I’d discovered it a couple of years ago on a brief visit and thought: This paper is astonishingly rich.

I confess to simple amazement when I learned on this visit that it’s largely a student-produced paper at Webster University, Vienna. All I can say is – long may it publish and flourish! Its size and quality is magnificent in an era of declining print values. And thank you for running the first article I’ve ever read on the annual Wittgenstein Symposium in Austria, an event that has fascinated me since my graduate-school days in philosophy. Webster University Vienna really deserves credit for rising to the fantastically literate level of the suberb city in which it operates.
