ONLINE ISSUE

This month we honour the literary output of two of Britain’s cinematic avant-gardes: two poems from the forthcoming reproduction of Derek Jarman’s ultra-recherché A Finger in the Fishes Mouth, published by Test Centre as part of the year-long series of events, 'Jarman 2014'; along with an interview with Patrick Keiller (London, Robinson in Space), whose essay collection The View from the Train: Cities and Other Landscapes was released by Verso Books last year. Keiller featured in the second instalment of The White Review's Video Arcades radio series, 'Landscaping'. The issue also includes an essay by Daniel F. Hermann, curator of the acclaimed Hannah Höch exhibition currently showing at The Whitechapel Gallery, locating her at the centre of the Dada movement; a conversation with Beckettian actress Lisa Dwan; Chen Wei’s account of censorship, innovation and experimentation in the Chinese literary sphere; a short story by R.B. Pillay (last year’s Daniel T.K. Wong Fellow at UEA); and an essay on presence and writing by Scott Esposito.
