Clive JamesClearly [Updike] had poetic qualities as a writer: he had the imagery, the observation, the rhythm, the delight in making words click into their ideal working order. But it was into his novels that he put these things, was it not? Nobody, and especially not other poets, wanted to think of him as a poet as well. Helpfully, he appeared to think the same. But this posthumous volume, Endpoint: And Other Poems, tells a different story. Consisting entirely of poems he wrote in the last years of his life, it is a serious book indeed.
