Item Description...
Direct, informal, and richly evocative of his Jewish heritage and New York City home, Harvey Shapiro's poetry has occupied a unique place in American letters for over 50 years. This new collection brings together his latest work and much of his 11 previous collections, revealing the full arc of his carefully calibrated poetics. Shapiro engages themes including the immigrant experience, urban landmarks and lifestyles, family life, and war. The reader will see the more formal British-tinged cadences of his earlier work give way to the colloquial, personal nature of his later poems, and how Shapiro's candor and simplicity mark his work throughout the last five decades. Bringing the city and its balance of despair and exuberance into stark relief, this poetry is intimately attuned both to life's quiet disappointments and to its unanticipated miracles.

One of the Best  Jan 13, 2008
I have been a fan of Harvey Shapiro's poems for about 10 years now. This is one of the best collections by a contemporary poet that I have read.
 
Remarkably draws together the past fifty years of Shapiro's best work  May 2, 2006
The Sights Along The Harbor: New And Collected Poems is a definitive compendium of the diligent and inspiring poetry of scholar, professor, and veteran journalist Harvey Shapiro. Insightfully engaging his readers with conceptual, intuitive, and often a particularly Jewish rhetorical and lyrical work, The Sights Along The Harbor remarkably draws together the past fifty years of Shapiro's best work. How Many Times: How many times; Can you go back to the same scene; With love? I never hope to know./We work patiently at our quarrels,/Starting them now like love,/Deliberately but with elaborate/Ease. When they catch/We marvel at the blaze,/Crowding in close./"Inexhaustible." We shout at one another,/Happy for the moment./I never hope to know/How many times.
