AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In Volume 1 Number 1, the editorial of The Winthrop Review states that the periodical 'is, above all else, a University magazine; further, its pages will be devoted exclusively to humanitarian studies and to original, creative literature.'
In the Editorial of Volume 1 Number 2, it is stated that 'we simply felt that it was deplorable that the City of Perth, with 317,000 inhabitants, should lack a journal entirely devoted to literature and the arts.' And 'we represent(s) no particular "school of thought" or coterie...Especially, we want to encourage that shy specimen, the young writer.'

Works about this Work

West Coast Correspondences : Randolph Stow Encounters Thom Gunn's The Sense of Movement Daniel Brown , 2011 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australian Literary Studies , May vol. 26 no. 1 2011; (p. 33-50)

'Taking a letter from English poet Thom Gunn, resident in California, to Stow in Geraldton, WA, as a starting point, the author explores 'correspondences' between the two poets. He examines the way in which their 'mirroring movements between England and the New World enact comparable tensions and preoccupations in their work, between cosmopolitanism and localism, Romanticism and demotic contemporary cultures, which may account for the affinity between them that Gunn's letter asserts so categorically and intriguingly' (p. 33). Brown discusses Stow's education and involvement in literary life at the University of Western Australia and his reading of Gunn's early poetry in The Sense of Movement 'focusing upon some telling resonances and contrasts' it has with Stow's own work' (p.33).
