Overview

The Spring 2007 issue of Ploughshares, guest-edited by Edward Hirsch. Ploughshares, a journal of new writing, is guest-edited serially by prominent writers who explore different personal visions, aesthetics, and literary circles.

Guest-edited by poet and critic Edward Hirsch (How to Read a Poem and Fall in Love with Poetry), the Spring 2007 issue of Ploughshares contains prose and poetry by such authors including Joyce Carol Oates, Patricia Hampl, Stuart Dybek, Jim Shepard, Philip Levine, Wislawa Szymborska, and Adam Zagajewski. In his Introduction to the issue, Hirsch says, "I want to send out this issue of Ploughshares in the high spirits of a Saturday morning in late March. I was alone and took a long walk by myself, but I also carried with me this surprising gathering of writers, this sudden congregation of solitaries, some from different countries, a few no longer living. It was solitude with others, some of whom scared me with their intensity, which is what one wants from art."
