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.
