The Literary Review is an American literary magazine founded in 1957. The quarterly magazine is published internationally by Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, New Jersey. In addition to the publication of short stories, poems, and essays, The Literary Review prides itself on publishing English translations of contemporary fiction from various countries around the world, often dedicating an entire issue to a single language (e.g. Japanese translations).[1]

Since its inception, The Literary Review has published the work of 22 Nobel Laureates.[2] Recent articles and stories published in The Literary Review have been anthologized in the Best American Mystery Stories and elsewhere.[3]

The Literary Review maintains a close relationship with the Fairleigh Dickinson University writing MFA program; several of the program's students can be found on the publication's masthead. It offers the annual Charles Angoff Award for outstanding contributions to the magazine in honour of The Literary Review's editor, poet and novelist Charles Angoff (1902–1979), who served as editor from 1957 to 1976.[4]
