1. Prosody. A metrical foot consisting of three long syllables.
2. A Molossian dog.
3. An online broadside of world literature.
The molossus is a metrical foot of three consecutive stressed syllables. Like our namesake foot, the editors of Molossus intend for its content to maintain its forcefulness & power from beginning to end.
Molossus is an online broadside of world literature. We publish original interviews, reviews, essays, reportage, & more. We reprint selected work, too. We publish interviews & reviews on a weekly basis, with a commitment to contributing toward the transatlantic and English-language diaspora dialogue. We are especially keen to review literature in translation & book arts editions of contemporary literature.
The dogs termed molossus did not end strong—they are now extinct—but some scholars (i.e. Wikipedia) contend that they were used to fight lions, tigers, elephants, & men in battle. We prefer ideas to tigers.
