Fall 1975

The Fall 1975 issue of Ploughshares, guest-edited by Frank Bidart. Ploughshares, a journal of new writing, is guest-edited serially by prominent writers who explore different personal visions, aesthetics, and literary circles.

Ploughshares' first double issue, this edition was guest-edited by three-time Pulitzer nominee Frank Bidart, whose chapbook, Music Like Dirt, was the only chapbook in history to receive a nomination. Esteemed poets Robert Pinsky and Lloyd Schwartz also compiled the work as Associate Editors. This issue features work from Nobel Prize winner Octavio Paz, National Book Award Winner David Ferry, Ruth Lilly Lifetime Poetry Prize Winner Eleanor Ross Taylor, and John Peck, as well as future Ploughshares Guest-Editors Mark Strand and Joyce Peseroff, making this prodigious volume a collection of true literary powerhouses.
