I'm reading Edmund Wilson's collected book reviews and essays from the 20s and 30s. There's no one, at present, on the scene as discerning, incisive, and as elegant a writer as EW. Many of his reviews were for *The New Republic*.

This is a terrific look back at the last 20+ years of book reviewing. (I left Book World in 2005, during the "convulsive book review contraction" you describe so well. Glad to see the section revived and expanded!)
