    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2012; US$ 16.95

    In the boldly eclectic title poem of his collection, John Updike employs the meters of Dante, Spenser, Pope, Whitman, and Pound, as well as the pictographic tactics of concrete poetry, to take an inventory of his life at the end of his thirty-fifth year?at midpoint.  These cantos form both a joke on the antique genre of the long poem and an attempt... more...

  • Collected Poems, 1953-1993by John Updike

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2012; US$ 25.00
