Poetry. Robert B. Shaw's excellent new book is based, for the most part, in everyday things perceived or recalled, and those things are given us with clarity, with the excitement that precision brings, and with an unforced delicate sounding of such great themes as mutability. The strength and variety of this collection will not disappoint his readers, old or new. -- Richard Wilbur. Robert B. Shaw's THE POST OFFICE MURALS RESTORED, also available from SPD. His awards include the James Boatwright Prize from Shenandoah and fellowships from the Ingram Merrill Foundation and the NEA.
