If we were more conscientious about getting content up here on a regular basis, I’m sure there’s much we
could have said about NYC poetry. Maybe once the semester’s ended I’ll get into a regular blogging routine here.
For now, I’ll take another shortcut and provide a link to my Monday post elsewhere, which includes a brief contextualization of Hart Crane’s “To Brooklyn Bridge,” the introductory poem to his 1930 work The Bridge. Until this year we’ve included it on our Writing New York syllabus.
Were we right to cut it?
