The Drunken Boat ISSN: 1530-7646
Spring/Summer Vol.4, Issue I-II



What is it all for, this poetry,
This bundle of accomplishment
Put together with so much pain?
Do you remember the corpse in the basement?
What are we doing at the turn of our years,
Writers and readers of the liberal weeklies?


—from “August 22, 1939,” Kenneth Rexroth

Interviews

Shirley Kaufman

“When I despair about the everlasting struggle here between Palestinians and Israelis, and the devastation and cost of wars all over the globe during my lifetime alone, I try to find some faint gleam of hope in people who are gifted in language, communicating with each other and with the widening circles around them. ” An interview with American-Israeli poet
Shirley Kaufman.
By Lisa Katz.

Gali-Dana Singer

“Well, there's always some freedom; it's the necessary oxygen of translation. If you don't take that freedom, the poem never lives in the new language. For me the meditative process during which you sink into the text and begin to reconstruct it is slightly different; it's more like writing where you don't know what's coming next. ” An interview with Russian-Israeli poet Gali-Dana Singer.
By Lisa Katz.

“Making poetry accessible to the public does not mean that poetry becomes the stuff of mainstream, or a how-to-guide for flatliners. I believe there has to be a balance between poetry floating on mediocrity and slipping into near oblivion. ” By Mia, Editor.
