Walk on the Wild Side: Urban American Poetry Since 1975 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In cities such as New York, Chicago, and San Francisco, poetry is reclaiming a place in our culture, as evidenced by hundreds of readings each month. With the city as its focus, this anthology of 120 poems taps into the urban resurgence of American poetry. Lightning Print On Demand Title

Synopsis:

"Walk on the Wild Side", the first anthology to plumb the maze of American urban life, gives us the city in all its forms: ethnic, economic, religious, political, sexual, intellectual. Poet and novelist Nicholas Christopher has chosen 115 poems from sixty poets, representing more than twenty cities. These are not just poems "about" cities, or with the city as subject; they filter and radiate the diversity and vitality of today's cities, from the electric night of New York to the sun-blanked sprawl of Los Angeles, from the factories of Pittsburgh to the waterfront of New Orleans. A kinetic mix of new voices and established writers, "Walk on the Wild Side" presents the timeless themes of poetry through the prism of our unique urban experience.
