Chimaerid (K-EYE-MI-RID) – The chimaerids are a group of fish, named after Greek mythological beast the chimaera, a monster put together from the parts of many animals.

Our magazine also is put together from many parts and includes the talents of many types of artists – poets, photographers, filmmakers, painters, prose artists, etc.  We’re that kind of fish.

The Chimaerid, 2010

Advisor’s Note: This year’s edition of the The Chimaerid, while not arranged completely thematically, does incorporate themes of interest to students this year.  You will find a number of pieces on the theme of “place,” Boston in particular, as well as places beloved by travelers.   Encouraged by Professor Tyler, many students submitted imitations of classic works of literature and art, while others created work that comments on a particular art form or artistic movement, such as hip hop. The edition is rounded out by some lovely work of personal reflection in the form of essays, photographs and poetry.
