El Corno Emplumado 26

, by Margaret Randall

El Corno #26 had work by Ed Dorn, Jorge Seferis, Nathanial Tarn, Ernesto Cardenal, Roque Dalton, Luisa Pasamanik, Susan Sherman, Stephen Levine, Gonzalo Arango, Lizandro Chavez Alfaro, and John Berger, among others. We were doing book reviews by this time, and books by Tom Raworth, Lionel Kearns, Jerome Rothenberg, Paul Blackburn, and Miguel Barnet were featured. Russell Banks and Rini Templeton were among those whose letters we published.

The cover of this issue reproduced the famous Cuban Protest Song poster by Alredo Rostgaard of the rose with a drop of blood falling from a single thorn, already an icon of the times.
