Overview

The two-for-the-price-of-one poems in Shadow Box -- poems enclosed, or embedded, or inlaid within poems--comprise a new and dramatic verse form by one of America's most respected poets. While playful in their construction, they present heartfelt examinations of human feelings, respond somberly to the news of the world, and rejoice in humankind's plentiful variety of attitudes and beliefs. In the end, these poems broaden the expressive possibilities of formal poetry by engaging the imagination in fresh and out-of-the-blue ways. At once revolutionary and traditional, Shadow Box is deep and full of surprises.
