Winter 2006-07


Guest Editor


The Winter 2005-06 issue of Ploughshares, guest-edited by Rosanna Warren. Ploughshares, a journal of new writing, is guest-edited serially by prominent writers who explore different personal visions, aesthetics, and literary circles.

This issue of Ploughshares features selections of poetry and prose by award-winning poet Rosanna Warren (Ghost in a Red Hat, Stained Glass). In her introduction, Warren writes, “The pieces I looked for dislocate ordinary language and ordinary vision, and relocate them in parables of sudden insight. The poems suggest stories while casting their song-spells; the stories tilt sentences and paragraphs into rhythmical sequences that formalize the words with which we think we are familiar from everyday speech.”

This issue features new work from former Ploughshares guest editors Jane Hirschfield and Tony Hoagland and acclaimed authors and poets John Casey, W. S. Di Piero, Collette Inez, Tomaž Šalamun, Kate Walbert, and Charles Wright.
