In this issue, we invite you to investigate how international social control—explicit or implicit; government-sanctioned or cultural—affects the arts. Examine the printed proceedings of Harvard University’s 1990 Conference on Forms of Censorship. Acquaint yourself with Peter Dale Scott’s Coming to Jakarta through a reflective essay by the author, an interview, and three reviews (plus an excerpt from his book Listening to the Candle: A Poem on Impulse!). Delve into essays (such as Monroe Engel’s on Raymond Carver’s “Cathedral”), book reviews, and translations before returning to the original texts or approaching them for the first time. Explore the timely and the timeless with fiction and poetry from John Updike, Peter Balakian, Natalka Bilotserkivets’, Stash, Cordelia Candelaria, Wendy Ranan, Frances Minturn Howard, Jay Klokker, Jill Bialosky, and more.
