Margin: Exploring Modern Magical Realism

The following are poems we have selected from two of Franz Wright's books of poetry, The Beforelife and Ill Lit: Selected & New Poems. We feel many of them venture naturally into areas of magical realism. We'll hope you'll take a look and contemplate their place in the world of magical realism as well. -- The Editors, MARGIN
