KARL SHAPIRO
Shapiro handwrote this letter in 1979 on his personalized stationery to "a treasure of a teacher"
Autograph letter signed "Karl Shapiro" in blue ink. 1 page, 7 ¼ x 10½ on Shapiro's personalized stationery. Davis, California, January 8, 1979. Addressed to Gwen McGilheny. In full: "Dear Gwen McGilheny, What a treasure of a teacher you must be! Sincerely," Shapiro (1913-2000) was an American poet who published his first collection, Poems in 1935 and his last, The Wild Card, in 1998. He wrote several volumes of poetry while serving in the United States Army Medical Corps, winning a Pulitzer Prize for Essay on Rime in 1945 while in uniform and serving in the South Pacific. Although he taught for most of his life, he condemned domination of American poetry by tradition-bound academics. Termed "the bourgeois poet" by a hostile critic, he embraced the term, using it as a title for his 1964 book. Before his death Shapiro completed two volumes of a projected 3-volume autobiography. Lightly toned. Page has been folded in three and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
