Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 10, No. 6. May 28, 1947
Perhaps the most noticeable thing about "Landfall" is that it tries to do so much, and who can blame it when there is so much to do. But this may be a mixed blessing. How can one small quarterly run commentaries on current art, review books, publish verse and short stories, and include as well contributions which have "no apparent connection with the arts?" I shall leave Mr. Brasch with the editorial enigma which some day (I hope) may confront him.
The fate of "Landfall' is still unknown, but sad though I should be to see it fail, its life or death is not now the real question. As Fairburn remarks, we are an unsophisticated race, and should not be in too much of a hurry to grow up. Meanwhile, the thaw has set in.
