Down Below

Unforeseen urgencies, heightened introspections. The long Covid siege has put pressure on everything, not least the expressive arts. AGNI 93, with its unsettling cover and art portfolio by Deepa Jayaraman, channels the mood of the times. The issue includes poetry by Rafael Campo, Hope Wabuke, and others; fiction by Sara Majka, Jamie Figueroa, and Anzhelina Polonskaya (translated by Andrew Wachtel); and an utterly sui generis essay by Gregory Paul Caicco. Variety and intensity are the hallmark—we celebrate the wresting of meaning from loss and distress.
