Celebrate our twentieth anniversary year with AGNI 36, an issue that tugs between the fantastical and the everyday. You will find here writing that is grounded in bodily and cosmic speculation, that challenges inhumane working conditions, that pulls at family ties and pushes our understanding of being human. In addition to our feature on Thom Gunn, which includes an unpublished draft of his poem “Meat” and Joshua Weiner’s close reading, we offer a second feature, “Writing from India,” which includes Mridula Garg’s essay on bilingualism and Indian writers’ work in translation. AGNI 36 also presents essays, fiction, and poetry by Seamus Heaney, Victoria Nelson, Peter Sacks, Ha Jin, Peter LaSalle, Dorianne Laux, Patricia Smith, Vijay Seshadri, Liam Rector, Laura Mullen, Jorge Luis Borges, and Donald Hall.
