The ninth issue of jubilat, the campus-based literary magazine, is now available.
Jubilat 9 includes an interview with poet John Ashbery, selected entries from Oliver Wendell Holmes'' “The Autocrat of the Breakfast Table,” and a series of dispatches from penguin researchers in Antarctica. Also featured is new work by an array of emerging and established poets including Timothy Donnelly, Michael Earl Craig, Rebecca Wolff, Mark Levine, and Sarah Fox, a memoir by Russian philosopher Yakov Druskin, selections from Pliny''s “Natural History,” and translations of poems by Fran?ois Rabelais, Aase Berg, and Carlos Edmundo de Ory.
Work from recent issues has been selected for inclusion in “Best American Poetry 2001,” “Best American Poetry 2002,” “The Pushcart Prize XXVIII: Best of the Small Presses 2004,” and for re-print in Harper''s Magazine. Jubilat has also been featured in Poets & Writers, The Chronicle of Higher Education, on National Public Radio''s “All Things Considered,” and in the New York Public Library''s exhibit, “New American Literary Magazines.”
Twice yearly jubilat delivers more than 150 pages of the best in contemporary poetry along with art, interviews and prose. Part of the unique focus of the journal is to offer a forum for poets to publish prose pieces on a wide variety of subjects which may or may not have anything to do with poetry. In addition, jubilat re-introduces lost or neglected talent that may have been passed over by the standard canon or otherwise deserves a wider audience. Past issues have included work by Tomaz Salamun, Anne Carson, Jacqueline Osherow, Nathaniel Mackey, Charles Simic, Odysseus Elytis, Claudia Rankine, George Oppen, Jane Miller, Vasko Popa, Jack Spicer, and C.D. Wright.
