Scarlet No. 5, published September 1991
Table of Contents
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."
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.
