Synopsis

Trenchant prose writings on poetry, poets, and cultural matters by one of the most important essayists of his generation. Edited with an Introduction by Robert Phillips. A lively and slashing critic...reading him one feels windows opening, clouds passing, sunlight, and a fresh breeze entering the room. -Joseph Epstein

Karl Shapiro (1913-2000) was born in Baltimore, studied at Virginia and Johns Hopkins, and served in the southwest Pacific in World War II. He returned home with the 1945 Pulitzer Prize for his second book of poems, V-Letter and Other Poems, and went on to a long and distinguished career as an American poet, writing books of poetry, autobiography, and essays (including In Defense of Ignorance, The Bourgeois Poet, White-Haired Lover, and To Abolish Children), and teaching at various universities. Robert Phillips teaches in the creative writing program at the University of Houston and is Karl Shapiro's literary executor.
