Dear Friends and Colleagues

Issue 5 of The High Window has now gone live on the internet and is free for you to read and enjoy. As always there is a wide-ranging and impressive mix of poetry. Our Featured American Poet is Jay Passer and the translation supplement contains a selection of poems from Portugal and Brazil. If that was not enough, we have added an essay by Edmund Prestwich on translating the Middle English classic Pearl, and new artwork by Angela Smyth, our resident artist for all of 2017.

We would like to thank warmly all those who have contributed to this issue.

If you are impressed by what you see, please spread the word via social media and, if you have not done so already, we’d be grateful also if you would ‘like’ our Facebook page.

Finally, our HW book for this quarter is From Inside by Anthony Howell and if you check out our Press page you will see some of the other titles in preparation for 2017. Go to The High Window.
Happy reading and best wishes
