The Editor and staff of Criticism are pleased to announce that Richard Foster was made the recipient of a Longview Literary Award of $300 for his essay, "Criticism as Poetry," which appeared in the Spring 1959 issue of Criticism.

The Longview awards are given annually by the Longview Foundation for outstanding work in poetry, fiction, and the essay, published in literary periodicals which are unable to pay, or to pay adequately, for their contributions.

The Longview Awards Committee for 1959, which surveyed the entire field of "little" magazines, poetry and essay collections, and other literary periodicals, consisted of Saul Bellow, Louise Bogan, Charles Boni, Alfred Kazin, Thomas B. Hess, and Henri Peyre.
