Description
Famed for its remarkable bridge and the nostalgic pleasures of Coney Island, this tribute to New York City's most populous borough features 135 poems from the colonial period to the present, including contributions from the American poets most closely associated with Brooklyn—Walt Whitman, Hart Crane, and Marianne Moore. Here too are poems from such residents and visitors as Elizabeth Bishop, Frank O'Hara, Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Federico García Lorca, Audre Lorde, Philip Levine, Derek Walcott, Galway Kinnell, and C.K. Williams. In his foreword Hal Sirowitz examines the cultural and literary appeal of Brooklyn, and capsule biographies are included for all of the poets.
