Signed copy of Shapiro's poem Nostalgia
Typescript signed: "Karl Shapiro/-cordially!" 1p, 8½x11. Shapiro published the five-stanza poem Nostalgia in 1942, while serving in the United States Army Medical Corps. 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, fine condition.
