This anthology brings together a sampling of some of the best poets working in Chicago and the surrounding region. From all corners of the city, these poets are crafting a voice for Chicago literature in the new century. When Carl Sandburg asked in his Chicago Poems, close to a hundred years ago, for a voice to speak to me in the day end, / A hand to touch me in the dark room / Breaking the long loneliness, little did he know his city would be so fully and lovingly answered and so honored. Chicago is once again transformed by poetry. Here in these myriad acts of imagination, the poets of THE CITY VISIBLE give to it again, in Shakespeares terms, a local habitation and a name--Peter Gizzi
