AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Cities are as complex and unknowable as they are familiar and unsurprising. We can feel as if we know a city intimately, or merely indicate its mysteries to our fleeting perceptions. Or its mysteries can appear in and through the mundane. Cities reveal their collective ghosts through their landscapes, their histories, their people, their sounds and smells. Cities ask us to invent not only ourselves, but a view of ourselves within the cityscape we imagine.

'In this Recent Work Anthology, we asked ten poets to write about cities around the globe, to construct new perspectives on these cities and, if only for a moment, hear their rhythms, and find their meanings.' (Publication summary)
