Volume 97 No. 2 March 2023
“The Russophone Literature of Resistance,” guest-edited by Mark Lipovetsky and Kevin M. F. Platt, headlines the March 2023 issue of World Literature Today. The eight writers included in the cover feature all oppose the Russian Federation’s current regime, whether from inside the country or beyond its borders. Additional writers highlighted inside include Alexandra Lytton Regalado (El Salvador), Siphiwe Ndlovu (Zimbabwe), and Bridget Pitt (South Africa), along with essays on “The New Cadre of Latin American Women Writers,” a postcard tour of unique bookstores along the US–Mexico border, and three dispatches from literary Istanbul. Be sure to check out the latest must-read titles in WLT’s book review section, three recommended Indigenous horror novels, and much more!
To make the cover feature widely accessible to readers around the world, the editors are making the entire section free to read during the month of March 2023. Throughout the month, readers who are not current subscribers can take advantage of coupon code SlavicLitWLT to start an individual subscription or share one with friends. In solidarity with the people of Ukraine, we are also (once again) making the July 2022 cover feature devoted to Odesa and Kharkiv—which included responses by Ukrainian writers to the Russian invasion and the first months of the war—freely available during the month of March.
