IN PREVIOUS ISSUES

Blackbird publishes new issues twice a year. The notion of “issue” is both a nod to the print journal and a way for us to call attention to the new work of a limited number of writers. However, publishing online allows us keep all issues available for reading, listening, and viewing. On this page, we wish to point you toward some of the content you may have missed but which still lives in our Archives.

Tomas Tranströmer   Tomas Tranströmer
Patty Crane’s new translation of Nobel laureate and Swedish poet Tomas Tranströmer’s 1996 book Sorgegondolen (Sorrow Gondola) offers a chance to revisit these poems, to note their resonance, and to explore the influence they exercise on other writers. Included with the these translations are the poems in the original Swedish, an essay by David Wojahn, a letter to Tranströmer by Jean Valentine, and contextual influences of Franz Liszt.
     
Philip Levine   Philip Levine
The work of Philip Levine has appeared in Blackbird since its inaugural volume in the spring of 2002. In v3n2 you can also find print and audio versions of a reading the poet gave in September 2004 at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts as well as an audio interview conducted at VCU. Our v8n1 issue includes two new poems in prose by Levine. The audio and transcript of his keynote reading at Larry Levis: A Celebration are featured in v9n2.
     
Norman Dubie   Norman Dubie
Blackbird began publishing Norman Dubie’s book-length futurist poem, The Spirit Tablets at Goa Lake, with “Book of the Jewel Worm” in v1n2. The other two sections, “Book of the Jaspers” and “The Book of the Crying Kanglings,” appeared in v2n1 and v2n2 respectively. A master menu connects the sections across the three issues. Five additional poems by Dubie appear in v7n1 and seven poems in v10n1.
     
Kelly Cherry   Kelly Cherry
In v7n1, Kelly Cherry’s essay “The Achievement of George Garrett” investigates Garrett’s preoccupation with memory, autobiography, and fiction. She writes: “Of course, writers live real lives, lives of, as Garrett emphasizes, facts. A writer’s work necessarily reflects, distorted or not, those facts.” Cherry’s story, “On Familiar Terms,” which appears in v10n1, bends and complicates the facts of one family’s history.
     
Kelly Cherry   Eleanor Ross Taylor
Poems by Eleanor Ross Taylor as well as an audio interview appeared in v1n1, and poems also appear in v7n1. In v9n2, Susan Settlemyre Willams reflected on Taylor’s fifty years as a published poet and noted that, all along, Taylor’s work has been characterized by “absolute originality” and a “self-directedness.” Fifteen previously unpublished poems, accompanied by drafts, appear in v11n1, as part of a suite honoring her life and work.
     
Kelly Cherry   Mark Jarman
“Our destination is where we hope to arrive. / Simple enough but now a paradox, / Since now we cannot be certain of our arrival / And have to pray simply that we arrive,” writes Jarman in “Canzone” from our inaugural issue. He has has also appeared in v1n2 in an interview conducted by Mary Flinn and in an essay “Happiness: The Aesthetics of Donald Justice.” Three poems appear in 10n2. His essay “American Devotions” appears in the current issue, v11n1.
     
Kelly Cherry   John Bresland
In v4n1 we published two essays by John Bresland. “Les Cruel Shoes,” a video essay set in the streets of Paris, and “Harley Momma,” an audio essay reflecting on his fifty-seven-year-old mother’s decision to “take a Fat Boy cross country.” In v9n1, Bresland cocurated and contributed to a suite of video essays and provided a traditional print essay defining the form. Bresland collaborates with Brian Bouldrey on the video essay “Hook” in this issue.
     
Kelly Cherry   Sandra Beasley
“If Beasley were to call herself a bombshell, however, you should think landmine,” notes Susan Settlemyre Williams in her review “Two Poets to Watch,” in v7n2. Beasley’s frequently explosive poems can be found in issues v5n1 and v7n1. She is also one of the journal's most prolific and insightful readers, with book reviews appearing in v7n1, v8n1, and v9n2. Most recently, her review of Traci Brimhall's Rookery appears in v10n2.
     
Kelly Cherry   R.T. Smith
Two poems by R.T. Smith, “Crawdads on the Styx” and “The Perils of Censorship,” appear in our inaugural issue. Since then, he has contributed a number of poems and works of fiction to Blackbird. Short stories appear in v3n1 and v5n1, and three additional poems can be found in v8n2. In this issue, Smith presents four short fictional accounts of Colonel Othniel Sweet, expounding upon the mysteries of nature as well as the strange nuances of humanity.
     
Kelly Cherry   Terri Witek
Terri Witek’s work first appeared in Blackbird in v2n1. “Start, as always, with pebbles in moonlight, / with an aproned woman urging you away / into woods with a fluster of language like ‘ogre’ / and ‘treasure,’” her poem “Conte Bleu (The Blue Fairy Book)” begins. In addition, we published four poems of hers in v5n1 and another four in v7n2. The current issue contains two poems by Witek, “RRX” and “So Look Up Already.”
