"Autumn Begins in Martins Ferry, Ohio" by James Wright
Aspirations of a Better Life
In the poem "Autumn Begins in Martins Ferry, Ohio," the author, James Wright, tells a tale of a seemingly small, lower class, blue-collar community, whose love for football borders on fantasy. In Martins Ferry, football was a method of eluding the world the citizens were trapped in.
