Abstract/Description: Ghost City is a collection of poetry about Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It travels through the history, landscape, and family of the writer's hometown. The poems take up themes of love, loss, food, hope, and family. The author seeks to emulate many characteristics of other poems such as the rich images and details of Elizabeth Bishop and the storytelling genius of Philip Levine as well as to present a tale emphasizing the importance of place and time. Some are found poems recovered from the letters and writing of the author's family.
