Acumen #61

The latest issue of Acumen is #61.

Perusing the magazine, my eye lighted upon the title of a poem by Rebecca Gethin
River is the plural of rain
Under the title is a quote from Carole Satyamurti, so maybe the title is a quote too. Alas, the poem doesn't seem to quite hold the promise of its title. I'm reminded of it again, though, when Fred Beake in his article THE ART OF TRANSLATION writes
Language ... is a bit like a river. The same water can pass from source to sea, but context and usage change, and the water that makes it all the way down is diluted by passing streams and rain, and what have you.
The piece I enjoyed most in this issue was Andrew J Symons' account of A VISIT TO JACK CLEMO. As ever, there is lot else to read here.
