This issue features an essay by D. H. Lawrence reflecting on what he calls the "nodality" and permanence of Taos, New Mexico. Lawrence owned a ranch in Taos. He spent only 11 months of his life there, but memorably called it "the greatest experience from the outside world that I have ever had. It certainly changed me forever."
Notable contributors in this issue include: Sherwood Anderson, Yvor Winters, and Ezra Pound.
