The Spring 1975 issue of Ploughshares, guest-edited by David Gullette. Ploughshares, a journal of new writing, is guest-edited serially by prominent writers who explore different personal visions, aesthetics, and literary circles.

This classic poetry issue, with select fiction and nonfiction, is guest-edited by eminent poet and scholar David Gullette. Famous for his documentation of revolutionary Nicaraguan poetry, Gullette brings a similar international vein to his first Ploughshares issue by translating a piece by Nobel prize-winning author Octavio Paz, while also selecting several poems with a multicultural flavor ("Exile in Japan," "Foreigner," "The Chilean Singer"). Also featuring work from future Ploughshares guest editors Maura Stanton and Raymond Carver, as well as Gullette's own work, this issue continued Ploughshares' rapid evolution into prominence.
