The Dirty Goat 19
 
Current Issue - The Dirty Goat 19
Excerpts
The Dirty Goat 19 is an inspiring snapshot of the global world in which we live. The drama in this issue is represented by an excerpt from Michael Tisdale's new play, Goldstar, Ohio, which is based on the harrowing stories of families who have lost loved ones in Iraq. Continuing with the Middle East, we have a large bilingual Farsi/English section of Iranian women's poetry, featuring four of the most dynamic poets writing in Iran today. For the first time we venture to the Congo, with the lyrical poetry of Mutomobo Nkulu-N'Sengha. We also feature the work of several outstanding and eclectic poets from other never-before-featured countries, including Serbia's Novica Tadić, Norway's Annabelle Despard and Ukraine's Bohdan-Ihor Antonych, all represented here in bilingual format. Photography by Leonor Beuter (with accompanying poetry by Maria Rosa Lojo) and surrealist cartoons by Richard Brouwer provide two unique and contrasting visual art sections. Large prose selections from Colombia's Manuel Zapata Olivella, Argentina's Anna Maria Shua and France's Maria Bronsard offer yet another opportunity to travel the world with The Dirty Goat.
