Lapham's Quarterly embodies the belief that history is the root of all education, scientific and literary as well as political and economic. Each issue addresses a topic of current interest and concern—war, religion, money, medicine, nature, crime—by bringing up to the microphone of the present the advice and counsel of the past.

This issue looks at the theme of Night with contributing texts as far back as 700 BC to present day. Includes a diverse group of contributors from the past: Plato, Charles Baudelaire, Edith Wharton, Charlotte Bronte, Carl Sagan, Karl Marx, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Hildegard of Bingen, Charles Dickens, Miguel de Cervantes, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Robert Louis Stevenson, Franz Kafka, Virginia Woolf, Shakespeare, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Nabokov & many more.
