New muses join forces with old muses to inspire an electric, eclectic collection. AGNI 27 presents a special feature, “Lairs of God: Spirituality After Silicon Valley,” which brings together essays by Marilynne Robinson, Eliot Weinberger, David Lehman, and others to explore how technology—especially that of the word processor—shapes spiritual and literary life. Askold Melnyczuk asks us to consider, “[A]re we to assume technology has been humanized? Or has humanity been technologized?” Meanwhile, the issue’s feature poet, Glyn Maxwell, writes of “silence’s still geology” and “the crowd where voices die and resurrect as shouts” along with other haunting images. Don’t miss Tony Harrison’s play The Common Chorus, a whimsically profane re-imagining of Aristophanes’ Lysistrata, as well as the fiction and poetry of Elizabeth Strout, M.T. Sharif, Stephen Minot, Lucie Brock-Broido, Lynda Hull, David Rivard, Kathleen Norris, Yvan Goll, Sophie Cabot Black, and Odysseas Elytis.
