Twelve Gates to the City
John called it the Holy City. It has also been called Utopia (from the Greek for “no place”) and even the Emerald City: “the City” is where we are trying to go. This second edition of the Chrysalis Reader includes a series of poems, essays, and fiction about being outside it, finding our gate, and going in.
“The specific theme of this book reflects “gates” as the authors follow a winding path to self-knowledge, …an interesting blend. …Each essay or poem is an opportunity for readers to reflect on their own personal journey.”
