Welcome to the first issue of Harvard Review Online, a monthly online literary journal designed to complement Harvard Review. In order to make them more accessible, we are moving the majority of our book reviews online. We are also expanding our poetry section to include an online component, which will allow us to publish a greater number of new and established poets. We are excited about the flexibility this new medium offers, and look forward to introducing our readers to more great new work. We hope you enjoy the first issue!
