From the voices of protestors to the encroachment of a new fascism, everywhere we look, power is revealed. Spouse to spouse, soldier to citizen, looker to gazed upon, power is never static: it is either demonstrated or deployed. Its hoarding is itself a demonstration. This thought-provoking issue of the acclaimed literary annual FREEMAN’S explores who gets to say what matters in a time of social upheaval. FREEMAN’S: Power escapes from the headlines of today and burrows into the heart of the issue.
