New Pleiades = 29.1

Lucky enough to peruse the new issue of Pleiades.  Very nice, indeed.  Lots of poetry, which we like.  You can view the website for 29.1, or by going to http://www.ucmo.edu/englphil/pleiades/ & having a look around.  The story by Matthew Salesses, Corporal Dickenson is in Jail is bonecrushing, and the poems included in this issue range from quite formal efforts (a considerable amount of sonnets) to pieces that nudge the boundary b/t prose & poem.  Where the fiction in 29.1 levels its sights on romantic relationships, the poetry selected for this issue preoccupies itself with dreamscapes, landscapes & the sea.  Two poetry features, as well:  # 1. Introducing Celia Dropkin (“innovator of the erotic modernist love poem in Yiddish,” according to Yerra Sugarman), and # 2. Introducing Yvette Louisell, who E. Shaskan Bumas tells us “is serving a sentence of life without parole at the Iowa Correctional Institution for Women.”

Of course, all this work is accompanied by the Pleiades Review of Books, which spans 117 pages.

Definitely worth checking out.  & we hope you do.
