MEDIA REVIEWS
"I read Karl Shapiro's 'Essay on Rime' soon after the end of World War II, when that young American soldier's treatise in verse was a literary sensation. It was a fresh, vigorous poem, and it helped me in my own work. A few years later in 1955-56 I wrote 'Treatise on Poetry' and I believe the idea for that book first came to me when reading the young Shapiro."
This new edition of Karl Shapiro's Essay on Rime and Trial of a Poet restores two singular and ambitious works to the American canon. Simultaneously learned and streetwise, formal and improvisational, these poems of the World War II era still seem fresh and novel. There is nothing else like them--or Shapiro--in our literature.
