From a poet¿s¿or any artist¿s¿point of view, the problem is always to make art that bubbles over with an energy of its own, that isn¿t merely a reflection of somebody else¿s inspiration. As Thomas Fink points out in David Shapiro¿s case, the desire isn¿t to ¿make it new¿ for the sake of finding a place for one¿s work ahead of the competition. Rather, Shapiro¿s often-difficult work, as Fink proves, is true to itself, developing along the integral course driven by the poet¿s intentions. In this really remarkable work of literary criticism, Fink takes the difficult course himself, avoiding theory spinning and syllable counting (things with which academic criticism seems to be preoccupied), and instead examines Shapiro¿s work, allowing it to speak for itself.
