The Louisville Review’s Summer 2023 issue Number 93 features Alfred Conteh’s painting Aaron on the cover image and an essay about the work contributed by Alice Gray Stites. Poems by Rosa Nevadovska (1890-1971) open this issue, both in the original Yiddish text—a first for TLR—and in English translation by Merle L. Bachman. This issue offers a wide range of voices and subjects engaged: from an exploration of the too-often-hidden contributions of Black distillers of Kentucky bourbon, in Kentucky Poet Laureate Frank X Walker’s poem, “Masta d’ Steala” to a speculative view of a not-so-distant future deeply impacted by climate catastrophe in J. D. Strunk’s short story “Tokyo, 2031,” to an assertion of reliance and vibrance in advanced age in Alice Bingham Gorman’s poem, “The House of Eighty”—plus much more!
