Editorial Reviews

Amazon is thrilled to offer Kindle literature and fiction fans an exclusive free digest of The Kenyon Review. The Kenyon Review is an international journal of literature, culture, and the arts. For over seventy years, The Kenyon Review has published award-winning poetry, stories, essays, excerpts and interviews in a quarterly format. Each issue is a selection designed to cultivate a reader's faith in the power of words to surprise, provoke, illuminate, and delight. This free exclusive digest includes sample content from the full edition of each issue of The Kenyon Review. If you like the digest and are interested in reading the complete issue, subscribe to the full edition.

While issues of the magazine feature previously unpublished work from some of the very best established writers working today, The Kenyon Review also has a legacy of discovering and publishing significant new talent-- a legacy that includes such writers as Flannery O'Connor, Thomas Pynchon, W.S. Merwin, Ruth Stone, and many more. The Kenyon Review continues the work of pairing established and emerging talent in each upcoming issue.

Work published in The Kenyon Review is routinely anthologized in prize collections such as the Best American Poetry, Best American Short Stories, the Pushcart Prize anthology, and collected in the PEN/O. Henry award series. The Kenyon Review authors have won many of the most prestigious awards for contemporary literature, including the Nobel Prize, the Pulitzer Prize, the Man Booker Prize, and the National Book Award. With each published issue, expect to read new work from the writers you love, and to learn about writers who will write the next generation of exceptional books.

2.0 out of 5 stars poorly formatted for the kindle November 4, 2012
This is formatted like a Pdf for printed viewing. There are very wide margins which makes the text quite small. On every page I need to zoom in to fit the words to the screen which makes flipping pages cumbersome. Then when I go to the next page it needs to be zoomed again. I subscribe to other magazines that are formatted nicely and are easy to read. It makes it difficult to appreciate the content.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rendering issues April 16, 2012
I read the Editor's Note and the first two short stories with interest and enjoyment, but then I came to something titled "Handedness" that I can't make head or tail of. I suspect that the seemingly unrelated scraps of copy are meant to be captions for images that don't appear in my Kindle version, though even that wouldn't explain the seemingly random order of the text. I had hoped to solve this mystery by viewing the issue on Kindle for PC, but the journal is not available in that format, I find. Perhaps if I had a Kindle Fire...

3.0 out of 5 stars good November 14, 2012

this magazine is a good read. I was somewhat disappointed by the lack af range and somewhat depressing mood of all the articles. Maybe other issues would be different, but I don't have the money to waste on something just in case.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Kenyon Review (Free Exclusive Digest Edition) March 27, 2013
By Ron
Verified Purchase
On my Kindle I like to keep short stories and magazines for those times that I have to wait in waiting rooms, hospitals, at the mall or the parking lot while my wife is shopping.

I found the language and subject matter in the stories I read to be objectionable. I am not a prude, but I feel that it is an indication of a poor vocabulary when authors need to lean on profanity to move a story along. Sex scenes simply for the sake of a sex scene don't enhance the story, it digresses and is a indicator of a writers lack of imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absorbing, fun, interesting lit fic June 27, 2014
Always something worth reading here - I find some lit journals inaccessible or a chore to start reading, but not this one.
