Unless you’re from the area, or or an aficionado of forgotten places like me, you’ve likely never heard of Damascus. But if you’re a student of modern literature, you just might be familiar with former Georgia poet laureate David Bottoms‘s masterful poem, In a U-Haul North of Damascus. The poem is not about Damascus, per se, but this tiny town took its place in the literary pantheon with the publication of that work.
Brian , you have caused me to buy new maps of Georgia, because I just have to know where some of these Towns and communities are and quite often I am surprised ! Love em keep them coming!
