No. 5, published September 1991
Table of Contents
Of particular interest in this last regular issue of Scarlet are two essays by Alice Notley, "Women & Poetry," which was included Coming After, and "What Can Be Learned From Dreams?", an important essay which has not been republished.
from "Editorial": You may think you now know what to except from SCARLET. We hope not. If there's any risk of reaching that point our editorial policy is to put a bomb under the proceedings. We light a small fuse with this issue.
First, we have thanks to catch up with. We are very grateful to Etan Ben-ami and Sparrow and performers at SCARLET benefit they kindly organized at the Poets' Cafe. Also to the Funding for Poetry for a welcome grant, and to particularly generous subscribers: Rudy Burckhardt and Joe Brainard.
The present issue contains, of course, the solid bedrock of SCARLET: strong poems and prose by outside contributors which are not mere parades of genre (and are of many genres) but have something positive or disturbing to say.
