Another "general" issue for these generalissimo times
(third in a series of three). This one features a special vernal
nonfiction bonanza: a large excerpt of Australian poet Robert Adamson's
memoir, an essay by Michael Palmer on "Poetry and Contingency,"
review-essays of William Carlos Williams, Randolph Healy, and Mark
McMorris, reviews of Jennifer Moxley, John Ashbery, Harryette Mullen,
David Shapiro, Jose Saramago (and others), and a jaunty range of notes
and comments that includes a dispatch from Krakow, a note on the dearly
departed Stan Brakhage, and a survey of recent poetry readings in
And that's just the nonfiction! The issue also includes poems
by Camille Guthrie, Michael Palmer, Ed Roberson, Mei-Mei Berssenbrugge,
Karen Volkman (and others), fiction by Viet Dinh and Gerhard Roth, and
art by Anna Zemankova (on the cover and in an opulent centerfold).
