Abstract:

Admirers of Shapiro's work will welcome this volume of poems selected by the poet himself from over 50 years' work. Shapiro is a craftsman with an eye for detail. In poems such as ``Drug Store, '' ``Haircut, '' and ``The Tingling Back, '' he finds cause for personal celebration in the most quotidian occurrences; yet he is equally adept at probing more public subjects in ``The Conscientious Objector, '' ``Israel'' and ``Vietnam Memorial.
