In interiors by night-light, and by our own
admission, we levitate.
It is our birthright. Suppose the cargo was brought
for our welfare: a kind
of instruction toward ill, produce
we could not afford.
An attempt to recover the economy
thoughts about the climate and the waste
of our prose.
There were trees the storm had reserved,
fathers unmannered at the effort.
Our theater confused the gods.
We observed the trees. We never knew the fluttering
made them distinct.
While we have you...
...we need your help. Confronting the many challenges of COVID-19—from the medical to the economic, the social to the political—demands all the moral and deliberative clarity we can muster. In Thinking in a Pandemic, we’ve organized the latest arguments from doctors and epidemiologists, philosophers and economists, legal scholars and historians, activists and citizens, as they think not just through this moment but beyond it. While much remains uncertain, Boston Review’s responsibility to public reason is sure. That’s why you’ll never see a paywall or ads. It also means that we rely on you, our readers, for support.
