CAN LITERATURE AND THE ARTS BE IRENIC?
"We go to poetry for one reason, so that we might more fully inhabit our lives and the world in which we live them, and that if we more fully inhabit these things, we might be less apt to destroy both." --Christian Wiman, editor of Poetry Magazine.

This issue of The Velvet Light Trap seeks articles on comedy and humor in a variety of contexts. Papers may address traditional forms undergoing change, new or emergent forms, or comedy or humor as a component of cultural discourses.
