One of the many things poetry can do is serve as a record, a collection. It can document. In this class, participants will read through/to/about the cities poets are documenting. How do poets address urban life? How does urban life sway diction and rhythm? Cities change — the people come and go, and move fast and are on the go, and buildings and landscape change quite often — how does rapid, slow, and constant change influence poetry?
