Poetic Obituaries: [Harvey] Shapiro the poet was the author

of a dozen books, published between 1953 and 2006. In spare, often epigrammatic style, his work explored the world around him, from street scenes to intimate portraits of family life, with its attendant pleasures and pain. It also examined what it meant for him to exist in that world--as a man, a husband, a father and a Jew.
