The Dirty Goat 24
Current Issue - The Dirty Goat 24
The Dirty Goat 24 traverses five continents, bringing you a truly global literary experience. For the first time, The Dirty Goat visits Tanzania with the bilingual Swahili and English poetry of Euphrase Kezilahabi. Another African nation making its debut in the journal is Morocco, with the political and timely prose of Tahar Ben Jelloun. Asian poetry is well represented in this issue, with the bilingual Korean poetry of Moon Chung-Hee as well as poems from seven of China's most dynamic contemporary poets. We return to France with Jan Siesling's fictional account of the creation of a Renaissance masterpiece in The Master and present a unique selection of trilingual (French, Occitan and English) poems by Miquèl Decòr, accompanied by illustrations by Christine Noad. The Difficult, a play by noted German dramatist and librettist Hugo Von Hofmannsthal, and the Roshoman inspired Still Life in Ditch by Italian Fausto Paravidino lend a bold touch of European drama to this issue. Argentine writer Rodolfo Walsh's Irish After A Cat is a surreal and complex story that closes the issue. The United States is represented with the inventive poetry of Kurt Heinzelman and the visual art/installation of contemporary American artist Rob Seward. With a variety of literature from five continents and sixteen countries, The Dirty Goat 24 is a global literary delight.
