opens with an image of a woman running down a hallway in Harvard’s Longfellow Hall. . . . She tells him the news that Charles Stuart’s body has just been pulled from “the green tidal waters / Of the misnamed Mystic River.” Stuart had murdered his pregnant wife and blamed a black man for the crime in 1990, aggravating longstanding racial tensions in the city. . . . That poem . . . touches down in Mission Hill, Franklin Park, Huntington Ave., and “horsey Dover-Sherborn.” It is about race and class — and Boston.
