About The Labyrinth

The Labyrinth is an annual publication of the US Naval Academy's English Department. It is composed of the creative genius of the Academy's Midshipmen. The design, editing, and publication of the magazine are the direct result of the efforts of many Midshipmen with guidance from the USNA English Department's Faculty and Officers.

Symbolism Of The Labyrinth

The first edition of The Labyrinth was published with a drawing of a labyrinth on the cover. The title has a dual meaning. Physically, it refers to the Midshipmen's dormitory, Bancroft Hall, with its 4.8 miles of corridors and 33 acres of floor space. Psychologically, it refers to all of the rules the Midshipmen must navigate.
