The new issue of spoKe is now available for purchase online here and for free in a digital version here.

In this issue we have four special features. First, we present new poets from Uruguay. The home of Mario Benedetti has sprouted a whole new idiom of poetic voice. We also feature the “Minute-Operas” of Frédéric Forte, translated from the French. Alongside these innovations from across the world, we feature new translations of Catullus by Len Krisak. Finally, we end our feature section with the work of Boston’s Ben Mazer.

Alongside these features we have poetry from William Corbett, Margo Lockwood, Mark Lamoureux, Doug Holder, Patrick Pritchett and others. We also feature essays and criticism, including Christopher Ricks on T. S. Eliot and Bob Dylan, Dale Smith on Charles Olson, Rachelle Lerner on Kenneth Rexroth’s The Dragon and the Unicorn, Ruth Lepson on Robert Creeley, Kevin Bowen on Taylor Stoehr, and Paul Mariani on Wallace Stevens.

We’ll be throwing a release party Saturday, Oct. 4 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Grolier Poetry Book Shop. Readers include Ben Mazer, Len Krisak, Patrick Pritchett, Margo Lockwood, and Ruth Lepson.

The Grolier, 6 Plympton St., Cambridge, Mass., is the oldest independently run poetry bookshop in the U.S. and a great place to see a reading or find your next piece of reading material. So come out and support your local poets and your local journal.
