Spring 1987

Spring 1987

An issue of Ploughshares from Spring 1987, guest-edited by Derek Walcott. Ploughshares, a journal of new writing, is guest-edited serially by prominent writers who explore different personal visions, aesthetics, and literary circles.

This classic all-poetry issue, guest-edited by the Nobel Prize-winning poet and playwright Derek Walcott, features the work of a number of established masters as well as lesser-known poets. The issue includes work by Seamus Heaney, Rita Dove, Joseph Brodsky, Stephen Dunn, Rosanna Warren, Jorie Graham, and many others. As Walcott writes in his introductory note, "My principle was affection, and affection meant variety, not theory."
