KARL SHAPIRO
The poet, a veteran of World War II, signs his autograph quotation on a copy of his poem, Elegy for a Dead Soldier
Autograph Quotation signed on a Typed Poem: "Karl Shapiro/All the artist can do in an/age of violence is to remain an/artist at all costs. That will give/hope.", 4 pages, 8½x11. Signed at the end of a typed copy of his 12-stanza poem, Elegy for a Dead Soldier. Shapiro published this poem in 1944 while serving in the United States Army Medical Corps. American poet Karl Shapiro (1913-2000) published his first collection, Poems in 1935, his last, The Wild Card, in 1998. This poem was written while Shapiro was serving in the South Pacific with in the US Army Medical Corps during World War II. The following year, 1945, still in uniform, he won a Pulitzer Prize for Essay on Rime while 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. Light corner creases. Two nailhead-sized brown stains in upper right corner of first page. Otherwise, fine condition.
