That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you're not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.

about the masthead image
Elly van Gelderen. "The Future." Charcoal and pastel on paper.
Elly van Gelderen, a Regents' Professor of English in Linguistics, is also an accomplished visual artist in a variety of media. She has shown her work locally at the Memorial Union (2002) and was a regular exhibitor at English's annual Homecoming Art & Archives Gallery through 2013. About this piece, van Gelderen says, "It was based on a newspaper picture of a Timorese group of people. I was attracted by the image because there was so much visible in the faces: hope, indifference, excitement."
