To anthropologists cities are a fact of life for man. Men did not consciously form cities. cities grew out of mans need for sharing food and other necessities and the need for communication and recreation. Cities were formed to serve those needs and in turn the cities molded men and women to serve their needs. Lewis Mumford in The Culture of Cities states, Urban forms condition mind. Cities cause men and women to behave in various patterns, not always to their betterment. For this reason people have long been suspicious of the city. This suspicion of the city is well represented in the poem Chicago by Carl Sandburg. The poet describes the city as wicked and brutal, full of painted women under gas lamps luring the farm boys, gun men who kill and are free to kill again, and hungry faces of women and children. Yet he defends the city. Inspite of the negative aspects, the city is proud of strong men building a future, flinging majestic curses amid the toil of piling job on job, a city laughing through the dust, half naked, sweating/ proud to be a Hog Butcher, Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat, Player with/ Railroads and Freight Handler to the Nation.
