The Decadent Review is seeking spectacularly written texts of any length on the subject of Dmitri Shostakovich and his music.
We're looking for:
Criticism (cultural, literary).
Reviews (recordings, books, poetry, art).
Essays (aesthetics, linguistics, meta, history).
Musical ekphrasis of compositions (poetic, euphonious, discordant).
Use spaces, not tabs, to format stanzas.
Do not use the ruler to format stanzas, use spaces.
Do not count on page width to format stanzas, use explicit new lines.
One article per author.
