In This Issue:
In these pages you will find urban legends, headless horsemen, wendigos, aliens, curses, wishes, myths, magic, Gothic tales, and much more. Our poets draw upon the collective psyches of cultures around the world: from the tomb of Baudelaire to the neolithic stones of Ireland, from the wilds of New Jersey to the tremulous heights of the Himalayas, from the musket fire of the American Revolution to the coco leaves of the Andes, we find ourselves keeping company with travelers, ghosts, psychopomps, and madwomen.
Tanka is small form that can handle any content, and this issue of Atlas Poetica proves it by focusing on large subjects: death, religion, myths, dreams, legends, history, and the numinous nature of the human soul. As always, tanka poetry and tanka prose are accompanied by articles and book reviews that expand the reader’s experience. Now in its sixth year, Atlas Poetica is one of the most prestigious tanka journals available in English.
