Explore new worlds and relive our twentieth anniversary year with AGNI 35, a collection imbued with a powerful sense of places and spaces. Sven Birkerts suggests that the act of reading is “the positing of an elsewhere.” Accordingly, these pages interrogate the relationship between self and place, beginning with discussions of taxation (an epigraph from Thomas Jefferson sets the tone) and then expanding into notions of foreignness, familiarity, and belonging. Together, these poems, stories, and essays examine how language can serve—-or fail to serve—-as a conduit for the self. Curl up with a copy of AGNI 35 and “posit an elsewhere” with the help of great writers including Jessica Treadway, Marjorie Agosín, Lawrence Rosenwald, Joseph Lease, William Arrowsmith, Yves Bonnefoy, Sophie Cabot Black, Jason Shinder, James Laughlin, William Corbett, Thomas Sayers Ellis, Cyrus Cassells, Yusef Komunyakaa, Gail Mazur, and Faiz Ahmed Faiz.
