john writing

a literary periodical begun in Tangier in 1969 by Paul Bowles in association with the publisher Drue Heinz and Daniel Halpern, who has remained its principal editor. The first issue, published in 1970, was followed by a further sixty prior to the appearance of the substantial and attractively produced Antaeus: Jubilee Edition in 1990. Among the authors of prose fiction whose work has been featured are Edna O'Brien, Italo Calvino, Raymond Carver, John Fowles, V. S. Naipaul, and William Trevor; the poets contributing to the magazine have included W. H. Auden, Joseph Brodsky, Czeslaw Milosz, John Ashbery, Seamus Heaney, Yanis Ritsos, James Merrill, and Derek Walcott. Numerous special issues have concentrated on such topics as autobiography, letters, diaries, and nature writing. During its first two decades Antaeus established itself alongside the Paris Review as a leading forum for international writing in English and the publication of important work in translation.
