Digitizing the Old and New Series was a special centennial project managed by Editorial
Assistant Yasha Magarik, with assistance from Webmaster Joe Fassler.
The Yale Review's archives are split into three sections: Old Series (1892-1911), New
Series (1911-1991), and Recent (1992-Present). The Old Series is a single tripartite
index, organized by author, subject, and book being reviewed. The New Series indices
are available volume by volume, by amalgamations of 10 volumes, and by an
amalgamation of the entire New Series. Within the New Series, Volumes 60-79 are
broken into specific issues, but are available in the same formats as the rest of the New
Series to simplify your search. Recent issues are available by volume, which are broken
into specific issues.
To search for a specific piece of text (such as a name or topic), you can use the ctrl + F
(or command + F) option and type the text into the search box that will appear in your
internet browser. This search method is not case sensitive, but is sensitive to the order of
words, such as first and last names.
We have taken significant pains to standardize, to the greatest possible extent, the format
of the indices. Spelling mistakes are minimal; punctuation and pagination errors are
infrequent but do occur. Certain words—especially those transliterated from foreign
languages—are spelled differently; if you are unable to find a specific word, try different
iterations and conjugations of it.
Finally, to purchase back issues, you may write to our publisher.
