El Corno Emplumado 14

, by Margaret Randall

El Corno Emplumado #14 featured poetry from the cold—but intensely poetic—lands of northern Europe: Finland and Russia. The Finnish anthology was collected by Anselm Hollo, and showcased such poets as Pentti Saarikoski, Paavo Haavikko, Pertti Nieminen, Anya Vammelvuo, and Matti Rossi. The Russians were Yevgeny Yevtushenko, Robert Rozhdestvensky, Svetlana Yevseyeva, and Bella Akhmadulina. There was also work by Clayton Eshleman, Lenore Kandel, Felix Pollak, Edmundo Aray, Jan Arb, Juan Rulfo, Jerome Rothenberg, poems from the Romany translated by Christopher Perret, and a tribute to T. S. Eliot with contributions by Agusti Bartra, Homero Aridjis, and Alejandra Pizarnik among others.

Art in this issue was by a number of Finnish artists—among them, Ahti Lavonsen, Teemu Lipasti, Alpo Jaakola, Irmeli Kukkapuro, and Helmi Rittaa—as well as by the U.S. American Connie Fox.
