“Providence in 2000 A.D.“


“Providence in 2000 A.D.“
   Poem (70 lines); probably written in early 1912. First published in the [Providence] Evening Bulletin (March 4, 1912).
   HPL’s first published poem is a satire in which a man in the future returns to Providence and finds all the place names changed to reflect the foreign immigrants in the city. The poem was inspired by a petition by the Italian residents of the city to rename Atwell’s Avenue (the chief thoroughfare in the Italian district, Federal Hill) to Columbus Avenue.
