Summary

Winner of the New American Poetry Competition 1997, chosen by Bruce Andrews. The selector for the 1997 New American Poetry Competition, Bruce Andrews, writes of this exciting book of poetry: "The citya'any city, your citya'comes alive in all its maximal, flash-frame, cut 'n' paste glory in Robert Fitterman's Metropolis. Book I (1-15) launches this open-ended project, resuscitating the Long Poem tradition with a fluxy, ambient splash of border crossings, of social life way beyond the narrowly literary or the possessive lyric's 'merely personal.' Here we're 'coming down from the repro...,' with hairpin turns through a multiplicity of style, into an everyday sensory hologram, a porous yardsale of coming attractions." Robert Fitterman, with his wife, the poet Kim Rosenfield, lives and works in New York City.
