Bound for glory

The poems in this issue stand out above the stories. Particularly Bruce Smith’s “Through the Agency of Al Green” and Dean Young’s “Coming From, Going To.” (Ploughshares offers content online, but links change daily.) Local poet Kevin Young is the guest editor, and in his 
introductory note  he mourns the closing of the Plough and Stars (where the mag was founded) and the death of old Cambridge, with a hopeful note at the end when he finds out the Plough would make a comeback: “maybe not everything has to disappear after all.”
