Karl Shapiro: Selected Poems

Edited by John Updike

“A splendid reminder of how good a poet Karl Shapiro could be. One of the first things to be said about Shapiro’s poetry is that, various though it is, it is never gloomy. A pleasure in life, in its richness, variety, and oddity, informs many of his poems, even those that verge on the dark.”—Joseph Epstein, The Weekly Standard
