El Corno Emplumado 9

, by Margaret Randall

Our first issue of 1964 featured a section of poetry written by painters: Henri Rousseau, Giorgio de Chirico, Paul Klee, Francis Picabia, Jean Arb, Oskar Kokoshka, and Salvador Dali.

El Corno #9 also featured a small anthology of poetry from Peru, and work by Juan Martinez, Theodore Enslin, Thelma Nava, Efrain Huerta, Allen Katzman, Agusti Bartra, Anselm Hollo, Ulises Carrion, and Jack Hirschman.

The journal had received an enthusiastic letter from Henry Miller, and Sergio Mondragon and Margaret had visited the aging writer at his home in Pacific Palisades, California. We talked while he dished us up plates of scrambled eggs. Miller gave us a frament of an unpublished prose piece called "Nexus II" which also came out in this issue.

Arnold Belkin, Bartoli, Haime Carrero, Thomas Merton, and Daniel Gonzalez contributed visual art.
