The essays in this collection discuss how the city is ‘textualized’, and address many aspects of how texts and images are written and produced in, and about, cities. They demonstrate how urban texts and images provoke reactions, in city-dwellers, visitors, civic and political actors, that, in turn, impact upon the shape of the city itself. Many kinds of urban texts – both manuscript and print – are discussed, including chapbooks, periodicals, poetry, graffiti and street-signs. The essays derive from a range of disciplines including book history, urban history, cultural history, literary studies, art history and urban planning, and explore some key questions in urban cultural history, including the relationship between text, image and the city; the function of the text or image within an urban environment; how urban texts and images have been used by those in positions of power and by those with little or no power; the ways in which urban identity and values have been reflected in ‘street literature’, graffiti and subversive texts and images; and whether theories of urban space can help us to understand the relationship between text, image and the city. As such, this volume will serve to enhance the reader’s understanding of the nature of urbanism from a historical perspective, the creation and representation of urban space, and the processes of urbanization. It investigates how the creation, distribution and consumption of urban texts and images actively affect the shaping of the city itself – a mutually constitutive process whereby text, image and city create and sustain each other.

In the oral tradition of storytelling, these poetic ballads are meant to be memorized and recited “from the heart”—some take 15 minutes to perform! The poems cover a variety of themes: The series “Tales of the Rugged Trails" are grisly barroom ballads set in the Arctic, Out West, and on the sea. It includes "The Voice of the Bar” and “License or Prohibition" which deal with the evils of alcohol. “Cook and Peary" debates the question of who first discovered the North Pole. “The Blue and the Gray" and “Decoration Day" have a patriotic theme. A series of poems on the lighter side include titles like “The Butterfly and the Rose" and “The Old Picket Fence.” And there are many humorous personal poems. A new generation is discovering that poetry is a performing art, as evident by the popularity of poetry slams, rapping, and Poetry Out-Loud competitions. Young people are realizing that poetry is meant to be heard like a song and recited like an actor performs lines. Still, many people today find poetry boring and hard to understand. The poetry of George Albert Leddy will surely go a long way to help change that perception.

The Greek Bible and the services of the Orthodox Church have proved a rich source of language for many poets of modern Greece, and perhaps for none more than for Kostis Palamas, Angelos Sikelianos and Odysseas Elytis, whose overlapping careers span the period 1876-1996. A blurring of the boundaries between Orthodoxy and 'Greekness' ("hellenikoteta," which all three poets celebrate) has often led critics to assume from the Christian borrowings in the poetry the Christian allegiance of the poets. Through detailed analyses of selected poems, focusing on their relation to Biblical and liturgical source texts, this book questions whether the work of these poets is compatible with Christianity at all. It asks whether a Christ who is assimilated, along with the Virgin Mary, into the ancient Greek pantheon, or presented as a symbol of Beauty, or as object of the erotic desire of the women of the Gospels is still within the realm of Orthodoxy. Above all it asks whether, when the poetic ego appropriates to itself words which in their original context belong to Christ or Jehovah, there is any room left for the divine, or whether the poet has not in fact elbowed God off the stage altogether."
