The MHRA is pleased to announce that Modern Language Review is participating in JSTOR’s “Register & Read” beta program, a new, experimental program to offer free, read-online access to individual scholars and researchers who register for a MyJSTOR account. More details are available here.
Each volume consists of four issues, published in January, April, July and October of each year. Its 1000+ annual pages are divided roughly equally between articles, predominantly on medieval and modern literature in the languages of Europe, and over 500 reviews of books in these areas. All contributions are in English, and each section is edited by a noted scholar in the field, under the overall supervision of the General Editor. Articles are chosen not only for their scholarly worth and originality but also, as far as possible, for their potential interest to a wider readership in other disciplines.
No correspondence is published in the Review, nor are advertisements carried.
The following fields are covered:
One Hundred Years of 'MLR': General and Comparative Studies
To celebrate the centenary of Modern Language Review the MHRA has published a supplement to Vol. 100 entitled One Hundred Years of 'MLR': General and Comparative Studies. It contains a selection of notable articles on general and comparative topics from past volumes, together with three new essays contributed by eminent scholars.
A sample article is available here. Originally published in MLR 97 (2002), Peter Davies' article 'Eine Sprechmaschine bin ich' considers the German Communist poet Johannes R. Becher's version of Majakovskij's epic poem 150 000 000.
