While George Plimpton may be gone, the Paris Review continues to soldier on, much the same as it has done for the past fifty years. Over its long history, this literary periodical has published important works by Philip Roth, V.S. Naipul, and Samuel Beckett. Their website offers selections from both current and previous issues, and for various members of the intelligentsia, this site will merit several visits. One special feature should be noted straightaway, namely "The DNA of Literature" area accessible on the homepage. Here, the staff members at The Paris Review have placed author interviews, including conversations with the likes of Saul Bellow, Nelson Algren, and James Baldwin. Additionally, visitors should take a look at the audio section of the site, which includes readings by a variety of poets and authors, including Billy Collins, Agha Shahid Ali, and Pier Paolo Pasolini.
