Overview

The Fall 1994 issue of Ploughshares, guest edited by Rosellen Brown. Ploughshares, a journal of new writing, is guest edited serially by prominent writers who explore different and personal visions, aesthetics, and literary circles.

This is the first issue of Ploughshares dedicated solely to the personal essay, and subtitled "Intimate Exile." Acclaimed novelist, essayist, and poet Rosellen Brown writes in her introduction, "There's been great pleasure for me in assembling an issue of Ploughshares--the first devoted entirely to nonfiction--that includes considerations of intimate personal history, science, travel, the acquisition of language, religion, politics, food, pop culture, birth and dying, war, sex, friendship, and a little professional attention to literary matters as well. The manner in which these 'subjects' come under scrutiny ranges from the traditional 'well-made' construction to a few looser, associative flights that laugh in the earnest face of the (extended) five-paragraph theme." Featuring work from Charles Baxter, Frederick Busch, Rafael Campo, Michelle Cliff, Stephen Dunn, Kathleen Norris, Josip Novakovich, Naomi Shihab Nye, and Debra Spark.
