The City: Being a Pastiche of Book One of George Crabbe's The Village

Genre: Poetry
£6.00

Book Summary

Brad Ramsey is not a poet; the writer of that art form begins with a blank page. In its entirety, the author already presumes what he has written is extant, because he interprets and copies a masterpiece. Yet, in choosing to tell about his lived experience in community housing while following the method known as pastiche, his first contribution as a writer nonetheless stands as a postmodern homage to one of the great poems of the Romantic tradition.

Testimonials

"Portraying a small and often unacknowledged slice of life in its rhymes, the book stands as a forceful condemnation of class stratification as well as a respectful homage to Crabbe’s work."
