Burning City: Poems of Metropolitan Modernity

Jed Rasula, Josh Schneiderman

“The fascination of cities,” wrote Langston Hughes, “seizes me, burning like a fever in the blood.” In their new anthology Burning City: Poems of Metropolitan Modernity (2012), Jed Rasula and Tim Conley reshape the poetic landscape of modernism, collecting poems inspired by Paris, Cracow, Buenos Aires and many other urban hubs, that reflect all the feverish innovations of that era. Join poet and scholar Jed Rasula for a reading and conversation with Josh Schneiderman.


Cosponsored by the Poetics Group.
