RABBIT 18: The PHILOSOPHY Issue

Studio_20160616_213927

“Poems in Rabbit 18 present varied responses to the philosophical prompt. … There is confidence in Geraldine Burrowes’ regard for playfulness in life, but disquiet in Anna Jackson’s consideration of the philosopher-self through metaphor; Jennifer Compton delights in stripping a naïve student of her Woolf fantasy, while Helga Jermy returns to the questions of childhood; Dave Drayton puts forward a ‘philosophy for fractal poetics,’ while Edric Mesmer tests ‘the intellectual holdings of one’s own institution,’ extracting poem-lines from a catalogue search to interrogate the bounds of ‘one’s own knowledge, lexicon, “library.”‘

  –Jessica L Wilkinson, ‘Editorial’
