and Other Poems

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


This City and Other Poems holds special interest for poetry buffs; readers of African-American literature; and residents of southeastern Massachusetts. Everett Hoagland, poet laureate emeritus of New Bedford, Massachusetts, an inspiring UMass Dartmouth professor and inspired poet, has collected the poems most requested at regional poetry readings into one slender volume. These poems' subjects are the people, places, and things associated with the city of New Bedford and with events of national and world significance.

Everett Hoagland was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA. In 1973 he joined the English Department of the University of Massachusetts in Dartmouth, MA (formerly Southeastern Massachusetts University), Professor Hoagland has since then taught poetry writing and the literatures of the African Diaspora.

Hoagland has won numerous honors and awards, including The Gwendolyn Brooks Fiction Award. He has twice been a winner in the statewide annual poetry competition for Massachusetts Artist Fellowships. In 1994 the Mayor of New Bedford officially designated Hoagland Poet Laureate of that city.

Over the years Hoagland's poetry has been published in many prominent periodicals: The American Poetry Review, Black World, Caliban, Communications Education, Essence, The Iowa Review, The Journal Of Black Poetry, First World, The Massachusetts Review, The Progressive, and World: The Journal of the Unitarian Universalist Association.
