Publisher’s Description: Since 1969, FIELD: Contemporary Poetry and Poetics has been celebrated as one of the most stimulating poetry journals. FIELD regularly publishes the liveliest American poets, such as Traci Brimhall, Beckian Fritz Goldberg, Laura Kasischke, Kevin Prufer, Chris Santiago, and Arthur Sze.
Many contributors to each issue are new to the magazine and are very often poets who have yet to publish a first book. Being firmly committed to an international sense of the poetry scene, FIELD also features translations. Fall issues are prized for their symposia on the work of a featured poet (most recently Muriel Rukeyser and Tomas Tranströmer). Spring issues include essay-length reviews by the editors and invited critics.
