David Shapiro's poetry -- from his acclaimed 1965 debut January to the recent poems included in this career-spanning collection -- speaks with far-ranging erudition while playing across the surface of American English with a lyric sensibility unparalleled in contemporary verse. In this volume, his tenth book-length volume of poetry, readers can explore the breadth and depth of this iconoclastic poet's oeuvre.
Shapiro's work plumbs the ecstatic chaos of postmodern life with a voice that, in all its manifestations, remains simultaneously playful and lyrical. Including work from earlier Shapiro volumes such as Man Holding an Acoustic Panel and Lateness, this volume celebrates the impressive contribution of a New York poet whose experimental and intimate verse has earned him a significant place in our national letters.
