Abstract:

A series of semi-mythologized, symbolic narratives interspersed with dramatic monologues, the poems collected in The City, Our City showcase the voice of a young poet striking out, dramatically, emphatically, to stake his claim on "the City." It is an unnamed, crowded place where the human questions and observations found in almost any city--present, and future--ring out with urgency. These poems--in turn elegiac, celebratory, haunting, grave, and joyful--give hum to our modern experience, to those caught up in "the City"'s immensity, and announce the arrival of a major new contemporary poet.
