Dark Dove Descending & Other Prables

Stephen Meats, master craftsman, presents a stunning, long-awaited collection of short fiction and poetry. His vision creates new myths for the central plains region. He moves gracefully among images and memories, surely defining human dimensions of his geography and of his times.Jo McDogall writes: "Followers of Stephen Meats' work know to expect a passion for place-Kansas wind and sky; for family, its rewards and terrors; for the surreal in all its audacity and forays into the dark." Stephen Meats lives in Pittsburg, Kansas. He has served as poetry editor of The Midwest Quarterly since 1985. Meats has published one book of poems, Looking for the Pale Eagle (Woodley 1993). His poems and stories have appeared in numerous journals, including Kansas Quarterly, The Quarterly, Tampa Review, Arete: The Journal of Sport Literature, Hurãkan, Flint Hills Review, and others. He is currently Professor of English at Pittsburg State University.

The Midwest Quarterly

The objective of the Editors of The Midwest Quarterly is to discover and publish scholarly articles dealing with a broad range of subjects of current interest.  In no way competing with the more specialized journals, The Midwest Quarterly seeks discussions of an analytical and speculative nature rather than heavily documented research studies.
