Boxcar Poetry Review - Issue 17
Location, location, location. The last issue of 2008 obsesses over places and spaces, the making of goddesses and gods, the unmaking of the body, and the myriad ways in which we enter and leave each moment.
In like fashion, Janos Lanyi's photographs place in Korea and simultaneously displace us as well, providing textured and vibrant entries into these unfamiliar spaces and mirrored reflections of traffic and urban sites. Even in our reviews, Soham Patel sets foot in new territory, encountering Claire Kageyama-Ramakrishnan's Shadow Mountain as yet another new and evocative terrain blending mythic and personal landscapes.
