Animals Real & Imagined

Volume 92, Number 3

Our summer issue explores a big, almost unwieldy question: How do we better understand ourselves through the animals around us? The question is a layered one, invested with themes of stewardship, responsibility, imagination, devotion, even citizenship.

This summer, on a weekly basis, we’ll be rolling out new content  from a variety of genres—from reporting to poetry, fiction to photography. To keep up, we encourage you to sign up for VQR’s e-mail newsletter. Of course, if you prefer to dive into the entire issue at once, we’d love for you to subscribe.
